What is U-Report? U-Report Tanzania is a FREE multi channel platform that enables young people report on issues affecting themselves and their communities as well as to get real-time information and feedback on new campaigns.
How to Register and participate?
Registration by SMS is FREE to all users across all major mobile operators. This is achieved by texting the word ‘JOIN’ or ‘SAJILI’ to the short code 15070. Once complete, U-Reporters receive weekly polls asking for their opinions on issues such as health care, education, protection, and other available services in their communities. Answers are analyzed and displayed on a public dashboard with answers consisting of a mix of qualitative and quantitative data, which are then mapped according to region and compiled on a national level.
Results are shared with all U-Reporters with emerging issues explored further via additional questions and responses, thus building a cohesive citizen-led dialogue on social development and human/child rights that is communicated to policymakers and publicized in the media to influence social change.
