In an effort to promote opportunities for children and youth to express their views freely and make informed decisions as engaged citizens, UNICEF initiated U-Report Thailand in 2016.
U-Report is a social messaging tool which uses RapidPro back-end system to connect with Facebook Messenger as a channel to send out polls to gather adolescent and youth voices on various issues. U-Report is similarly supported by UNICEF in 50 countries with over 5.5 million users worldwide. In Thailand, there are more than 9,500 users with the majority being 15-24 years old, and an average poll response rate of 30%.
The poll results are then used to support evidence-based policy planning and implementation by UNICEF and partners, which include government agencies, NGOS and youth networks, to create positive change.
