Summary of Opportunity
SFCG is seeking a local Indonesian non-governmental organization to support SFCG’s ongoing a 21 months project, “Promoting Peaceful Narratives to Youth and Ex-Prisoners in Indonesia”. This organization will provide its expertise to the project’s goal, to reduce the influence of violent extremist narratives among internet users – particularly youth and ex-prisoners – in Indonesia, as a response to growing intolerance and unchallenged hate speech online in recent years.
Specifically, SFCG is seeking an organization to support the following activities:
Creation of (or develop existing) Messaging Hub Task-Force: Generate a comprehensive approach to tackling the vast swathes of extremist content and recruitment tools used online, to bring in representatives from key media outlets, civil society and research institutions, government bodies, law enforcement, religious organizations and social media companies such as Facebook and Path, amongst others.
Monthly Adaptation Workshops: facilitate 10 monthly adaptation workshops, which will enable the messaging-hub task-force to come together, analyze the progress of the project’s activities, share insights on areas of improvement or deeper coordination, examine areas for further expansion of the messaging campaign or media content produced, and discuss the latest trends and tactics of extremist organizations and how the project’s activities can adapt to the ever-changing dynamics.
Kuliah Tujuh Menit Videos (Seven-minute sermons): Create a series of five videos featuring moderate Islamic scholars that will counter the current violent and hateful religious narratives. They will be uploaded to various social media platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube, where Search will utilize the promoted post feature that are available to target the demographics.
Monthly Intra- and Inter-Religious Dialogues: Facilitate two alternating streams of alternating 10 religious dialogues with at-risk high-school and university students, which will both ground the project’s messaging to a people-to-people methodology, as well as build on the ground networks and connections within and across religious divides.
