"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

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
