What is Wupwoo?

If you’ve never heard of Wupwoo before, then you’re probably asking yourself – what is Wupwoo?
Wupwoo is an anonymous, interactive and social online platform, which provides a source of online moral support and encourages users to engage in social and physical activities. Wupwoo uses its innovative virtual, interactive world combined with distributing curated helpful resources in ‘information hubs’ to communicate and provide support in a secure and safe environment. The platform also has instant messaging, built-in games and other forms of supportive online help, including mood tracking and a diary, as well as a unique rewards system to promote positive reinforcement. It is a place where young people can have fun, earn credits and get rewards! Therefore, Wupwoo is a place where a user can escape their surroundings in reality and immerse themselves into their Wupwoo world of communication, self-expression and recreation.
