U-Reporters sign up voluntarily for anyone aged 14-24 in 14 Pacific Island Countries (Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federal States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu).
Simply open the Facebook Messenger app and search for U-Report Pacific and begin the conversation with “JOIN”. Once the registration is complete, U-Reporters receive regular 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.
