freedom1 Forum is pleased to inform you that it has set up an RTI Support Centre recently. The Centre is set up with the goal of boosting up right to information regime which is gradually gaining ground in Nepal. With the establishment, the FF has aimed at building better democratic practice in the governance as of maintaining accountability and transparency.
The Centre will essentially provide backstopping, follow-up and monitoring support to information requesters during the process beginning application filing to the recipient of information. In addition, it will also render service to those seeking facilitating support in course of using RTI ACT to demand information.
The establishment is in par with the recent initiative of the FF to impart internship training to 40 youths with zeal from various 10 far-flung districts which are vulnerable from the view point of governance. After the training, they would work on good governance and accountability with the use of RTI.
It is the FF’s motive to spread the RTI regime across the country so as to ensure the decentralization of good governance, to aware people about RTI and deliver justice to the citizens. freedom1 Forum is working for promotion of Right to Information through its RTI desk since 2007. Support Centre is the extended form of Forum’s RTI desk.
The Support Centre is led by the RTI facilitator.
