Terms of Reference For Graphic Design Services at SAfA Tanzania

SAfA Tanzania is a youth-focused project aimed at empowering over 50,000 Tanzanian youth aged 15-30 years in the regions of Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Mbeya, and Songwe, by enhancing their livelihood prospects. The project collaborates with three implementing partners: Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung (DSW) Tanzania, Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung (HRNS) Tanzania, and Kuhne Foundation (KF) Tanzania.

These three implementers leverage their expertise to foster skills development for remunerative employment, enhance agricultural efficiencies, optimize health supply chains, improve Reproductive Health Education (RHE) with strengthened gender responsiveness, and increase the utilization of youth-friendly health services. The project emphasizes sustainable development and community engagement to create lasting social impact and economic growth for Tanzanian youth.


The objective of this TOR is to engage a professional graphic designer to create visual content that effectively communicates the project’s activities, achievements, and impact in the project implementation areas.

  • Ensure all graphic design deliverables are provided in both high-resolution and web-friendly formats within the agreed-upon timeline.
