Vision

Build the capacity of Oromo citizens to make their voices heard and take their right place in the world community.

Mission

Network, Mobilize and Organize Oromo human and material resources to empower the nation to defend its rights, stand for peace, justice, equity, and democratic governance through self-determination.

Values

Our values are based on the egalitarian Gadaa/Siinqee system of the Oromo nation, which stands for, and promotes, truth, social justice, equality of citizens, unity of the nation, integrity of Oromia, freedom, peace and prosperity of the nation.

Success

Oromia Global Forum (OGF) was created to enhance each member organization’s chances for advocacy success. A coalition of 40+ Oromo faith-based, community, civic, professional and scholarly organizations, and human rights advocates, it is formed to efficiently and effectively coordinate their shared mission of advocating for the voiceless victims of injustice in Oromia, and beyond, so as to maximize their advocacy outcomes.

 

A first of its kind, with clear value proposition, OGF has demonstrated its value-add. It has created enthusiasm for, and brought to a whole new level, networking, information sharing, resource pooling and collaboration among Oromo organizations in the diaspora. It has implemented advocacy strategies such as issue analysis, organizing, raising public awareness, and lobbying to influence advocacy outcomes. In terms of issuing  appeal letters to governmental, international and non- governmental organizations, and statements in defense of the Oromo nation’s rights, OGF has  done a lot in its short span of existence. Creating links and engagements between Oromo and other nations and nationalities in Ethiopia, thereby establishing people-to-people connections and solidarity, is another arena in which OGF has demonstrated its value-add.

It is continuously striving to include more Oromo organizations and to connect its advocacy work to home-based activities.
