About FilmAid:

FilmAid is an international development and humanitarian communications organization that harnesses the power and influence of media and the arts to respond to emergencies as well as promote social change through dialogue in order to protect the wellbeing of displaced and vulnerable populations by building stronger, healthier, and more informed communities around the world. FilmAid has been using the power of film and media for 19 years. Its work in social behavior change communication (SBCC) spans more than 12 years. FilmAid has been working in Dadaab and Kakuma refugee camps for 18 years with a wealth of knowledge in behavior and attitudes of refugees and hosting communities concerning their health and social habits.

Project Background/Description:

FilmAid is deploying a three-pronged approach to achieve the goal of improving refugee/returnee community capacity, resilience and self-reliance to respond to the need for trusted and timely life-saving information in Dadaab, Kakuma and Kalobeyei. The components include Skills Development for Refugees and Returnees; Life-Saving Information Dissemination; and Social and Behavior Change Communications (SBCC). At least 80% of the staff (Community Resources Persons) that deliver FilmAid programs are from affected communities; building community self-management and leadership. Supporting and mainstreaming community-led responses to social challenges and building spaces for dialogue on the issues they face build community resilience and individual self-reliance. This enables affected populations to raise awareness, engage influencers (youth, government, UNHCR), and mobilize the larger community to respond to issues affecting them and address their concerns sustainably.
