Showcasing the U.S.-Somali Partnership: The U.S. Embassy Mogadishu Public Affairs Section (PAS) is pleased to announce an open competition for an assistance award, contingent on funding availability, through the Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. PAS invites eligible organizations (see Eligibility Requirements) to submit proposals for an award to produce and disseminate a 24-episode Somali language radio program and podcast showcasing the U.S.-Somali partnership in a wide range of areas. The program will be implemented as a Cooperative Agreement and will highlight areas of cooperation such as health, education, entrepreneurship, women's empowerment, law enforcement and security, energy, infrastructure, and other areas of collaboration. The program is designed to use documentary-style personal interest stories to inform the Somali public about: 1) how U.S. civilian assistance is contributing to Somalia's stability, prosperity, and self-reliance; and 2) how, working in cooperation with Somalia's leaders, international donors, and development partners, U.S. assistance has supported Somalia's efforts to spur trade and economic growth, strengthen the rule of law, foster civil society, promote people-to-people ties, and fight infectious diseases, such as COVID-19, as well as the direct impact of related programs. The program will produce 24 30-minute episodes prepared in a documentary style focusing on specific sectors and U.S. Embassy programs chosen in consultation with the Grants Officer and the Grants Officer Representative. The radio programs and podcast will aim to broaden understanding about the multi-faceted U.S.-Somali partnership. This program's direct target audience is Somali communities whose primary source of information is local radio. The secondary audience is members of the Somali public active on social media. Proposals must cover a one-year period of performance. Review the Notice of Funding Opportunity for a complete list of requirements.
