U-Report India is a free tool for community participation, designed to address issues that the population cares about. Once a U-Reporter has followed @UReportIndia on Twitter or Liked U-Report India Facebook Page, polls and alerts are sent via Direct Message and real-time responses are collected and mapped on this site. Results and ideas are shared back with the community and policymakers. Issues polled include health, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, youth unemployment, HIV/AIDS, disease outbreaks and anything else people want to discuss.
Individual messages are confidential but aggregated data is transparent.
Information received can be disaggregated by age, gender and country in real time and is used to connect young people with their representatives, improve UNICEF programmes and draw attention to urgent issues with national governments and the UN. NGOs, civil society and country leaders can see the information on the site to understand what the people want or need.
Registration is voluntary and U-Reporters incur no costs.
U-Report relies on volunteer community members serving as U-Reporters to provide information on issues in their communities to create change. In return U-Reporters will receive important information and alerts around international issues. Together we create change. U-Report India, Voice Matters!
