HELP!

Can anyone help me rewrite the following sentence from passive voice to active voice? I am a little stuck.

Much thanks in advance!!

See example:

These villages were located in rural areas, where not many encounters from the outside world aside from a few NGOs took part.

Apart from a NGO, not many outsiders encounter the villagers, who are living in rural areas.

This should be correct.

 

The villages are located in rural areas and don't experience many encounters from the outside world aside from a few NGO's.

Your revised sentence is still passive -- you have only changed the sentence from past tense to present tense.

My mistake.... "The villages located in rural areas don't experience many encounters from the outside world aside from a few NGO's."

Still passive. Changing the verb does not make the sentence active. In a strict sense, you must have a subject that is capable of taking the action of the verb. Being inanimate and nonsentient, a village cannot "experience" anything. You can correct this problem by changing villages to villagers.
