Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

This project is primarily aimed at bringing awareness of RTI in 15 districts of Tamil Nadu through direct action. Camps will be held outside most of the Government offices between Oct 13th and Oct 22nd 2008 to help bring awareness through direct action of filing RTI applications. Efforts will be coordinated by AID-India and other NGOs working in those districts. The support here from here is only for some basic awareness material and other relatively small admin expenses as the bulk of the costs are borne by the organizations participating





Reports of the campaign from different parts of TN have been uploaded





The primary goals of the project are to 1) Have camps outside Govt departments and help people file RTI applications thereby spreading RTI awareness 2) Help actually practice rather than preach RTI 3) Have mobile RTI clinics in the 15 districts for the duration of the camp 3) Empower the local people and organizations through these actions to come up with a more sustained plan
