  • Translation Services for Breakthrough ACTION-Nigeria’s Integrated SBC Mobile Training Curriculum

Background and context:

  • In August 2019, Breakthrough ACTION-Nigeria conducted classroom training for its Community Volunteers (CV) to deliver social and behaviour change messages in their assigned communities in Bauchi, Kebbi, and Sokoto. Following the classroom training, the CVs have received ongoing mentoring and coaching through supportive supervision visits by LGA supervisors. In order to complement supervision visits and to reinforce the classroom training, the curriculum has been adapted to a Mobile Training Curriculum that will be delivered to CVs through their mobile phones using an Interactive Voice Response approach. Essential course material has been broken into 16 modules, which includes course content and pre- and post-tests to measure how well CVs retained their learnings from the classroom training, and additional learning achieved after participating in the Mobile Training Course.

Specific tasks:

  • The Hausa Translation Consultant will independently undertake the translation of a 31-page (approximately 6,000 words) English document into simple and standard Hausa.

Approach to work:

  • The consultant will receive the English documents and work independently to complete the translation on time. The document is divided into 16 modules, and the consultant will submit each module as and when completed for review and feedback.

Deliverables:

  • The final document in simple and standard Hausa should be in Microsoft Word, and mirror the format of the English document.
