Winrock International, through the USAID-funded Safe Migration in Central Asia (SMICA) project, calls on prospective organizations interested in supporting the implementation of an IDEA-CHALLENGE in the following countries, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
SMICA plans to implement an IDEA-CHALLENGE (the Challenge) for 14-21-year-olds in CA that will focus on problem solving and increased understanding about TIP. The Challenge will be an online process, where youth participate in online and distant education courses on TIP, safe migration, and development of video-editing skills. The next stage is a problem-solving exercise to develop solutions that can effectively combat TIP and promote safe migration in their communities. The process will be supported with mentorship from representatives of SMICA, NGOs, and experts engaged by the Vendor. Participants will submit their solutions in a video presentation on social networks that feature the Challenge hashtag. Winners will be selected and announced in a regional online conference. The Challenge will have its own website to share general information, educational resources, and to feature the video solutions developed by the participants.
