U-Report is a social messaging tool that gives you a voice on the issues you care about.
In Uganda is a free SMS social monitoring tool for community participation, designed to address issues that people care about.
SMS polls and alerts are sent out to U-Reporters and real-time response information is collected. Results and ideas are shared back with the community.
Issues polled include among others health, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, youth unemployment, HIV/AIDS, disease outbreaks; social welfare sectors. Data received can be disaggregated by age, gender and district in real time. Registration is voluntary with SMS, facebook or twitter, free to the users across all networks. We have partnered with organisations like UNICEF and WAGGGS to bring this platform to a global level and discuss with other countries the things that affect them and their socities in whih they live.
U-Report is meant to be a safe space where the youth especially can discuss their views and in turn get response from their policy makers.
