The British Council aims to commission four short videos about social enterprises in Bangladesh, Ghana, India and Pakistan and the support they are receiving through our Global Social Enterprise programme. 

We are therefore issuing a Request for Proposals from organisations that have the capacity, experience and interest to take on this assignment. 

Interested parties will find all the details and application requirements in the documents attached below.   

About the videos

The videos will comprise case studies about social enterprises in Bangladesh, Ghana, India and Pakistan and the support they are receiving from UK and local organisations working in partnership through our social enterprise programme. 

We would like these videos to inform and inspire audiences by focusing on the positive impact and outcomes achieved by the featured social enterprises.

We also expect that the videos will convey why social enterprise provides a powerful mechanism for tackling social problems and building more sustainable, fair and inclusive economies and societies.
