BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

U-Report is a social platform developed by UNICEF in partnership with the Ivorian Government, available via SMS and Facebook where you express yourself on issues that are close to your heart, through short surveys every two weeks.

The results are then disseminated on social media and the media to create positive dialogue and give young people a voice.

But, U-Report in Côte d’Ivoire is much more than that! It is a movement of young people coming together, launching initiatives and taking action for positive change in their community.

The goal of U-Report is to strengthen the participation of communities in public debate to find solutions to the problems they face and enable them to influence decision-making powers, for positive change.

Joining the U-Report movement is joining a global movement for a more just society.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
