1. Name of The Association

IUOSA

What is IUOSA?
IUOSA means International Unity of Oromo Society Association. IUOSA is an association created under the umbrella/shed of Oromummaa foundation. It is led and run under the structure and leadership of Oromummaa foundation.

2. Mission and Goal

The Mission, vision and goals of IUOSA as formulated by the Oromummaa foundation are:

  • To help Oromo refugees, prisoners and orphaned children
  • To organize a united and International Oromo community organization under one structure and administration. That means to put together ourselves under one umbrella without dividing ourselves along our region, political affiliation or religion. It is only with unity that we can achieve our predestined aspiration and rights, in unity we can help those who are in need of our support in different parts of the world.

For many reasons Oromo communities living in diaspora in different countries do not have a well organized structured vibrant social organization. And those at home, Oromia are under constant harassment and suppression by the government of Ethiopia. Rampant killings, detention and fleeing from their cradle land became their normal life.

Therefore, IUOSA with stronger participation of new generation and women strives to form Oromo social organization as International level.

Though the intention of the International Oromo Social organization is to help Oromo refugees, prisoners and orphaned children morally, materially, financially and by giving human right protection, it also stresses on the unity of the Oromo people. IUOSA also participates on other Oromo issues wherever necessary.

So, in general, IUOSA works for the respect of Oromo Human rights, to help the vulnerable and victims of Ethiopian government and to develop its history, culture, politics, knowledge, health care, and economic development. It also works for closer cooperation with the societies of the world.

  • As drafted by Oromummaa foundation, it is the organization’s vision, goal and wish that liberty, peace, democracy and development be realized in Oromia, Ethiopia and East African region.

The programs of IUOSA are drafted or formulated by Oromummaa foundation. It has different key points in it. The programs are open for debate, correction and comment by different professionals, experts and people with different experiences and knowledge. If unnecessary points are identified, they will be deleted or amended. Up on recommendations and comments by the above stakeholders important points can be added. In general the program of IUOSA will be finalized and adopted after necessary comments, corrections and positive criticisms are made.

Therefore nothing can hinder a plan set on the value for doing something good.

4.7 The organization studies and identifies from time to time and assists Oromo political organizations demonstrating exemplary performance towards the achievement of the struggle for the rights of the Oromo people. The assistance is meant to encourage those who are championing for the realization of the freedom, human rights and democracy for their people.

4.8 Oromo political Organizations can only receive financial assistance from IUOSA only if they do not have any problem with IUOSA’s objectives and activities, and also recognize the necessity of its formation.

4.9 The organization also gives humanitarian assistance for those victimized while on struggle for the rights of their people.

4.10 IUOSA will not make any assistance to the so called Oromo organization like OPDO because they are violating the rights of their people.  But our organization will try its best to work on the members of this organization instead of them becoming an impediment to the wishes and aspirations of their people; they turn back to the right cause so that they join other Oromo organizations working for their people.
