In 2005 India’s Parliament passed the Right to Information (RTI) Act towards an increased transparent and accountable governance system. RTI has become a powerful tool that enables citizens to participate in the governance process and become aware of their rights and entitlements.

Now, in Jharkhand‘s four least developed districts — Khunti, Dumka, Pakur and Sahebganj — Welthungerhilfe, along with it's network of local partners, is working to increase and improve the access, delivery and quality of public services aimed at reducing poverty and social exclusion.

An Initiative for Good Governance

The EU supported ‘Initiative for transparent and accountable governance systems in Jharkhand’ focuses on three key areas: rural employment, health and nutrition and education.

Through a multi stakeholder approach, the program aims to enhance capacities of public service providers and functionaries for better service delivery, transparency and accountability. The initiative also aims to empower local self-governance bodies for improved citizen participation, planning, management and monitoring of public services.
