Empowering women through use of RTI Act
A training initiative “Empowering women through use of RTI Act” has been initiated at Imphal by the Manipuri Chanura Leishem Marup (Macha Leima). It has been supported by the British High Commission. It is aimed at providing educational and logistical support to grass root women for using the RTI Act besides empowering the women to understand and assert their rights and enable them to use RTI provisions pro-actively. The training program involves personal experiences of people who had used the RTI act to get detailed information of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.
