OFFICERS FROM TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL VANUATU (TIV) will be continuing the Right To Information (RTI) Bill Campaign to the island of Emau next week on Tuesday the 18th of October.
After successfully completing the RTI Bill Campaign around the island of Ambrym last month the TIV Team is focused now on visiting the Efate Offshore Islands to inform them about the RTI Bill. And the first island to be visited is the island of Emau.
The TIV Team is expected to begin the RTI awareness at ten o’clock (10:00am) at the Mangarongo Centre School, and invites village leaders and people from the villages of Mapua, Mangarongo, and Marou.
In the afternoon, a second RTI awareness will be held at Wiana village and people from the neighboring villages of Lausake and Ngurua could also attend there.
Transparency International Vanuatu, with financial assistance from the Pacific Leadership Program (PLP), has been conducting a year-long campaign since 2015 on the RTI Bill.
Our goals are to inform the people on the contents of the RTI Bill and how it will impact their lives when it becomes law, and to collectively gather and publish their opinions to the general public and to the Members of Parliament (MP) so that we can all share one voice and one vision when the time comes to talk about the RTI Bill when Parliament is in session.
After Emau, the next islands to be visited before the end of this month are the islands of Lelepa, Moso, Pele, and Nguna.
