The U-Report Bangla Version is an app for Bangladeshi Youth. This app is used by youth worldwide. It has several versions for different countries. Even Rohingya refugee adolescents in Bangladesh use the U-Report App, which was developed by Riseup Labs.
They also developed the U-Report Uniendo Voces for Venezuelan youth who have migrated to Brazil, Bolivia and Ecuador. Besides that, Riseup Labs also developed U-Report for youth worldwide.
Like those U-Report apps, Riseup Labs has been assigned to develop the U-Report Bangla Version now.
But you may be wondering, what is the U-Report Bangla Version? Teenagers and young people in the community sometimes struggle to express their ideas. They don’t have access to public forums where they can express themselves openly. People who are underprivileged are more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. UNICEF is developing the U-Report Bangla Version app for these youth. So that they can express their opinion freely.
U-Report Bangla Version is a youth engagement platform. It was designed for youth and other community members to speak their voices freely. So the U-Reporters will get many benefits while using the app. The benefits of the U-Report Bangla Version are:

It works offline also. An Internet connection is not mandatory for taking feedback.

UNICEF was thinking of developing a U-Report for Bangladeshi youth to express their ideas in Bangla along with the English language. But they were facing some problems in developing the U-Report Bangla Version. They needed the best app development team to develop the platform to implement all of their requirements. So the representative of UNICEF Bangladesh contacted Riseup Labs to develop the app as they had already developed several web and mobile apps for UNICEF before. The tasks for developing the app were the following:
The main Challenge of the U-Report Bangla Version app was Offline Data Submission to RapidPro. Offline data submission to RapidPro Workspace was a challenge for the development of the U-Report Bangla Version App.
The developer team of the U-Report BanglaVersion app properly analyzed the method to solve the problems. They used local DB to run the survey in offline mode and submitted survey data when the app came online.
U-report Bangla Version is an avenue created to bridge the adolescent and community of Bangladesh. This application will give them the opportunity to share their opinion. So, UNICEF Bangladesh wanted to add the following features to the app:
Riseup Labs is developing the U-Report Bangla Version. It's an open-source communication platform. It has some special services that will be provided for U-Reporters. The services of U-Report Bangla Version are the following:
Maintaining a mobile app is necessary. Because it allows the app to improve and provides the best ways to optimize. Moreover, the mobile app should have more user-friendly features, so the developer company should give after sales-service to you.
But Riseup Labs always provides after-sales service to its clients. This professional mobile app development company provides end-to-end app development services along with appropriate maintenance and upgradation of the app with time. Riseup Labs is giving the following services as after-sales services for the Bangla version of the U-Report of UNICEF:
U-Report Bangla Version isn’t just an app for the adolescents, youth, and community people of Bangladesh. It has a lot of impact on them. They are often not able to express their opinions and do not have any access to any platforms to speak their voices freely. They are used to hiding their feelings, limiting their healing.
Marginalized people are at particular risk of abuse and exploitation due lack of proper access to services & proper lifesaving information. Some access to available opportunities in the community often leads to idleness and makes them vulnerable to engaging in violence or anti-social activities.
But as the U-Report launched in Bangladesh they have been able to share their expressions. Raise awareness on social issues. Some of the impacts of the Bangla version of U-report on users are the following:
Some industries will be benefited from using this U-Report Bangla Version app. Because today's political, economic, and social challenges make it increasingly difficult to implement structural reforms.
But policy-making needs to go beyond normative statements about children's and young people's futures and engage them directly on the issues and services that directly affect them. With the emergence of new infectious diseases, healthcare partners, in particular, must work together across sectors to effectively use and apply healthcare data to save and improve lives. So the following industries will be benefited from the Bangla version of U-Report:
Riseup Labs has already developed three U-report apps for UNICEF. The language of those apps was English. They also supported Espanol, French, Italian, Arabic, and Portuguese. But this version has the Bangla language along with English. So, the Bangla support in this app is a very special feature for Bangladeshi users.
We have faced many challenges during the development of the U-Report Bangla version app. But solved them very quickly. We are proud to be the developer of this app.
