What is U-Report?
U-Report is a free, anonymous, and non-exclusive social messaging platform through which our youth aged 13 to 29 can speak out on issues they care about and receive important content that promotes personal, community and national development. Created by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), U-Report is currently active in over 60 countries across the world including Trinidad and Tobago.
In the nine years since launch in Uganda in 2011, U-Report has brought about law changes, exposed sex for grades crises, supported peace processes, combated cyber bullying and taken the voice of youth to high level forums on migration, HIV, SDGs and much more… On top of that U-Report is a tool used for mental health chat lines, menstrual health live chats, to provide migrants with legal advice on documentation, peer to peer counselling services, information hubs to combat the spread of cholera, Zika, Ebola... and a thousand other things. It’s enabled us to provide life-saving information after hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, landslides and volcano eruptions. It’s as virulent offline as online, spawning U-Report conferences, clean up days, adolescents teaching younger children in remote communities, Christmas dinner parties… the list really is endless!
