UNESCO supports and encourages its Member States to create an enabling environment, by promoting Media and Information Literacy (MIL) and taking concrete measures to help their citizens become media- and information literate. Acquiring MIL competencies allow individuals to confidently seek, critically evaluate and contribute to information online and offline.


Therefore, the UNESCO Dakar office, which oversees The Gambia, seeks to conduct an MIL competency gap assessment in The Gambia under its component of the Peace Building Fund project entitled “Young Women and Men as Stakeholders in Ensuring Peaceful Democratic Processes and Advocates for the Prevention of Violence and Hate Speech”. The two-year project is being implemented by the UN System in The Gambia as a part of the response to such challenges affecting community cohesion.



Within the framework of this Request for Proposals, the UNESCO Dakar office seeks to contract with an organization capable of:

  • Conducting the MIL competency gap assessment;
  • Training young community leaders on MIL to foster their participation to peaceful and democratic public discourse.
