Tanka Aryal is a Right to Information (RTI) activist who leads the Citizens Campaign for the Right to Information in Nepal. Accountability Lab helped him create a handbook with step-by-step instructions on how to navigate and overcome challenges in using RTI. They distributed 500 copies to investigative journalists, social activists, RTI activists, and government officials throughout the country. Then, he selected 10 committed RTI practitioners, from various regions of Nepal, as RTI fellows. They received mentorship and resources to file RTI applications on key issues in their community and write news articles above the information they discovered and the problems they solved through RTI.
