BBC Media Action is the international development charity of the BBC. Established in 1998, the organization seeks to reduce poverty and provide information to people around the world through media and communication programmes that inspire and inform. Since its foundation, BBC Media Action has worked in developing and transitional countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe on projects that deal with issues of health, resilience, governance, education, environment, livelihoods and emergency response.
BBC Media Action Ethiopia office is currently implementing a 4-year DFID-funded Ethiopian migration programme within a consortium led by Danish Refugee Council (DRC). The programme aims to protect would-be migrants and refugees from unsafe migration though and from Ethiopia. As part of this programme BBC Media Action plans to conduct research that will be used to inform programme design, and to measure reach and impact of the media outputs. Thus research agencies, especially agencies with experience in conducting research with refugees and
migrants are invited to submit proposals for conducting the fieldwork for the formative research and baseline survey. The request for proposal can be obtained by sending an email to the address below or come in person to the office.
