The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) is a five-year, global project funded by USAID, and based at the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP). It is designed to strengthen developing country capacity to implement state-of-the-art health communication programs.
HC3 is offering stipends of up to $9,000 each to four organizations in Benin and Madagascar (two per country) to serve as “Pilot Partners” to use the Kit in their existing work and pre-test it through practice.

- Have at least one existing project in adolescent family planning/reproductive health and/or SBCC in which the Kit can be used
- Have at least three years’ experience designing and implementing interventions for young people in family planning, SBCC, adolescent sexual and reproductive health, or related programs
- Be located in an urban or peri-urban location and implement programs in urban and peri-urban areas
- Work with urban or peri-urban adolescents ages 10-19 (male and/or female)
- Have adequate staff and technical capacity to apply the Kit carefully to at least one current or future project (e.g., will have sufficiently trained staff to lead and support Kit piloting efforts, manage the funding, monitor and report on progress and outcomes, etc.)
- Have reasonably consistent and reliable access to Internet to facilitate virtual technical assistance.
- Be able to provide documentation proving the organization is legally permitted to operate in the country where work will be carried out, as well as financial reports and proof of an organization bank account capable of receiving transfers in local currency
