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.
