We are searching for a group of skilled editors to help edit content written primarily by non-native English speakers. This content includes everything from reports about human rights violations committed by state and non-state actors in Ethiopia to organizational press releases. The amount of time that this would require is approximately 5 hours per week. However, there would likely be an opportunity for additional work if desired.

Our search for skilled editors is critical to our organization's advocacy work. A key part of what we do at OLLAA is creating written content that seeks to expose and publicize human rights abuses committed in Ethiopia. These reports are written by individuals in Ethiopia, and often, English is not their first language. As such, we are looking for volunteers, with good English skills, to help with the editing process. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to get practical editing experience while working on projects that make a difference.
From your first day working with us, you will be assigned a report/release to edit. You will be supported by our Operations and Research manager who holds a Master's in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies every step of the way.

Mission Statement

To be a force for human rights, women's rights, and indigenous people's rights by empowering individuals and communities across the globe.

Description

Who we are

OLLAA began in 2017 as the Coalition of Oromos for Human Rights and Democracy (COHRD). CORHD was an organization established to give voice to Oromo youth who were being killed, harassed, or imprisoned for the "crime" of protesting. In 2020, COHRD became OLLAA, a more comprehensive organization seeking to empower Oromos, neighbors & organizations to connect and thrive; not just merely exist or survive. OLLAA also means neighbors in Afaan Oromo.

What we do

By uniting and connecting Oromos and non-Oromos around the world, the Oromo Legacy Leadership & Advocacy Association (OLLAA) strives to promote universal values of human rights throughout Ethiopia and East Africa. OLLAA believes that it is only through these principles that Oromos, no matter where they may reside, can flourish and work to effect positive change. OLLAA's work takes many forms but mainly focuses on Advocacy and Education.
