U-Report: PakAvaz is a free SMS tool designed to amplify the voices of children and young people in community-led development, citizen engagement and positive change.
SMS polls and information are sent out to U-Reporters and real-time response information is collected. Data received can be disaggregated by age, gender and districts in real time. Results and ideas are shared back with the community, policy makers and public at large to encourage change. Issues polled include health, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, youth unemployment, diseases, outbreaks and social welfare etc.
U-Report: PakAvaz relies on volunteer community members serving as U-Reporters on a free entry, free exit basis to provide information on issues in their communities. Registration is voluntary with SMS free to the users across all networks.
As a U-Reporter you are also part of a global network of U-Reporters!
