RTI Activists are people who see the need for change and improvement on a large scale. They are people who are driven by passion and keen to share information more widely. For some Activism comes naturally, while for others, it's something that comes as a result of problems they see or upon learning about something they passionately believe needs to change. Whatever your reason for wanting to become an RTI activist, you have the ability to do so no matter your age, your means, or your background. Having the belief that you can make a difference and that you have the power to do something about an issue are at the heart of creating change for the better.
While it's great to think big, it's also important to think small and gradual and equip yourself with grass root knowledge and experience.
Think through all the possibilities for slowly unleashing change through your school, office, society, park, roads, cleanliness, or the municipality.
