Involving communities with Upinion

Involving communities in 
crisis situations


Those affected by crisis situations are the best to identify their problems, needs, and solutions. However, decisions affecting their lives are often taken out of their hands, made on behalf of them and not with them.

Direct and timely engagement with affected populations will result in non-governmental organization (NGO’s) getting a more comprehensive picture of the situation, allowing them to implement better tailored and people-centered interventions.

Continuously providing insights 
to NGOs


Upinion provides NGOs with valuable insights from the communities they work with. Our panels engage with thousands of people simultaneously, analyse the text, voice recordings, photos, videos gathered, and share the results with subscribed NGOs.

The stories, ideas and images we gather from these communities are presented to NGOs in forms of quarterly reports, topic-focused reports, online visualized datasets and workshops.
