Mobile messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger are the fastest-growing digital communication platforms ever and 3.6 billion people are already using it.
Upinion offers a simple solution: We allow you to ask a question to anybody, anytime, anyplace. How do we do it? Via mobile and social messaging. This enables NGO's to engage directly with their end beneficiaries to do needs assessments on affected populations at a fraction of the normal time, resources and costs.
We have recently been nominated for the Best Humanitarian Innovation Award 2018 and Best Idea for Development 2018. Also already 6 NGOs like Oxfam, Red Cross and Aidsfonds agreed to start a pilot project with us. Our first pilot has started this month in with Oxfam International in Greece. Together with Oxfam we are engaging with refugees on Lesbos to find out their needs.
Join our session to discuss to potential and challenges when using messaging apps to engage directly with the end beneficiaries.
