Request For Expressions Of Interest

Consultant, Children’s Book Project

Uweza Foundation is embarking on a new project that seeks to create local creative content to be consumed by children. Uweza will work with Kenyan authors and artists to develop a variety of creative stories for children between 4 and 12 years old. These stories will be accompanied with illustrations by talented artists from Uweza’s art program. The stories will be published into one book for the pilot phase, before publishing another two different books for children of African origin around the world to read, whilst having global appeal to children of all backgrounds.

Uweza Foundation seeks the services of an individual consultant, group or company to provide professional support and guidance on the various aspects of curating content for the children’s book. The Consultant will work together with the Uweza team to develop a framework and a set of guidelines that will inform the different aspects of the book like: content, structure, theme, topics, target age category, and other key issues that will determine the end product. In addition, the consultant will support Uweza in the process of identifying writers and overseeing the manuscript development process to ensure consistency and adherence to the set out guidelines. The consultant should have a good understanding of the existing gaps as far as children’s content is concerned and has past experience in creating content for books in Kenya.
