The coalition on the freedom of information was formed in 2003 by a group of Civil Society Organizations to influence the quality of legislation on Access to Information when the Act was still a Bill. After the passing of the Act in 2005, the Coalition aggressively engaged Government and other stakeholders to popularize, and advocate for the operationalization of the Act. This has been through coalition strengthening, organizing conferences and workshops, regional training workshops, media advocacy, research and documentation, production of Information, Education and Communication materials, public interest litigation, engaging in study tours to compare with other countries that have enacted and utilized the access to information law, commemorating the right to know day, and publicity among others.
