The platform does not track any identifying details of the child using the site. Once the child has entered basic information on age, gender and nearest major town, the platform generates a list of the nearest service provider addresses, working hours, landline, email address and emergency 24 number (if they have one). This list can then be printed out or emailed as a PDF.
The site is free to use, generously sponsored by HDF and Comic Relief. We will be formally launching Uphephe during Child Protection Week from the 27 May – 2 June 2016. We were assisted in the development of Uphephe by Lightspeed.
