RTI Nepal Mobile App to Address Human Rights Issues

In a move supporting human rights, Freedom Forum Nepal launched a first-of-its-kind mobile application called ‘Right to Information (RTI) Nepal Mobile App’ in Nepal.

This app, first such one by any Nepali Civil Society Organization (CSO), is coming at a time when the country is witnessing a major political and developmental shifts towards protection of citizen’s rights and Nepali society.

“The android app is an integrated package on several dimensions of RTI- from principles to practice aimed at making public and media aware of RTI usage and its benefits for a good governance endeavor in the country,” said Freedom Forum in its release.

At a time when the government is looking at strengthening local bodies and empowering citizens, this app comes to assure the transparency and accountability in public affairs.

The app covers the basics of RTI Act, guide to implementation of RTI, ensures the facility of downloading and sharing of common templates of RTI requests and also helps in reaching out to the chief of public agencies and the National Information Commission (NIC).

Through this app, all the Nepali RTI activists and campaigners can access all rules, laws, publications, updates, success stories/case-studies and discussion forums related to the RTI Act.

The app assists all Nepali human rights defenders, RTI activists, journalists and CSOs to learn and share ideas as an extended forum.

The app offers public assistance on the ways to exercise the RTI Act and also provides a special forum to share and discuss issues related to human rights.
