BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE
– U-Report is a FREE (no SMS charge) mobile-based opinion polling service for young people in Malawi.
– Opinion polls are on issues relevant to young people. U-Report is not political.
– It gives youth an opportunity to share their views. There are currently over 125,000 U-Reporters nationwide, most of aged 20-24.
– Anyone can register as a U-Reporter by texting the word JOIN to 1177. It is FREE both on Airtel and TNM!
– Results of the opinion polls are available online at www.ureport.mw/polls – including by district.

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.
