The purpose of Oromedia is to provide information, to connect people, to promote knowledge and advancement through collection, production and dissemination of information, providing training, organising information session forums with the aim of sharing information, education and experiences among nation.
We believe that members of the general public are the ultimate decision-makers and opinion leaders in our society. Community attitudes, beliefs, norms, and practices are shaped by the dialogues that take place within families and the social networks we experience in our everyday lives.
Hence, the role of media is to contribute to a strong civil society and active community life, provide access to knowledge and culture, extend education, and offer varied viewpoints and sensibilities. Media, as a primary source of information, play a very powerful role in shaping the public dialogues that eventually form community rules and standards.
