  • Develop and disseminate a programme brochure which will include information about the whole SASA Programme, with descriptive sections for each of the components and information about the planned activities. The brochure will be used to raise awareness about the entire SASA Programme.
  • Prepare SASA branding stationary using agreed visuals and propose other visibility items to be used in programme activities.
  • Support the PORALG website for SASA communications. The expert will engage with PORALG, and after authorization – with the person who is maintaining the PORALG website to support PORALG with modernization and update of its website to effectively promote awareness of SASA activities.
