Community Engagement Office - Tech Camps for Peace: The Community Engagement Office (CEO), of the Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce an open competition for assistance awards, contingent on funding availability, through the Public Diplomacy Grants Program. The funds awarded through this NOFO should strengthen local institutions, organizations, and communities to build self-sustaining capacity to implement long-term interventions to reduce violent extremism and ultimately contribute to a peaceful, stable and prosperous Pakistan. Tech Camps are a public diplomacy program hosted in the Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) at the U.S. Department of State and will follow guidelines from IIP. They are hands-on, participant-driven workshops that connect private sector technology experts with key populations to explore and apply innovative tech solutions to global issues. Tech Camps are focused on results, with participants identifying real-world challenges and working in partnership with trainers to apply technology solutions to these challenges. Each Tech Camp also includes ongoing impact-oriented programs and efforts to help participants implement their projects post-workshop and stay connected and engaged with each other, their trainers, and Public Affairs Section staff in Pakistan. The purpose of this project is to provide logistical support for a series of up to four (4) three (3)-day Tech Camps that will connect civil society actors and other public influencers with subject matter experts and technologists with the aim to enhance their digital media skills and strategies and to expand their organization's capabilities. The Tech Camps will build deeper understanding among the participants of the role technology can play in real-world challenges of P/CVE and create a network of practice. The CEO and IIP will identify participants, experts and content for the Tech Camps.
