ORA Anchor Organizations
In our inaugural year, Omega’s ORA project is focused on work in Latin America, Africa, and India as cohort sites. In each of those regions we partner with a local NGO to help co-design cohort recruitment, training and facilitation. These are our current global partners.

They are focused on unearthing the systemic roots (social, political and economic factors) of environmental and food challenges. Their program areas include fossil fuels, food production and hunger, and sustainability. HOMEF has developed deep expertise in facilitating community dialogue and joint learning on complex issues related to the polycrisis.

They also facilitate growth-stage social entrepreneurs to scale their models and drive large-scale systemic change. A cornerstone of their work is in training and coaching emerging leaders.
Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, AAdeAA/CAJE A works on issues of ecological and social justice.

Through legal, legislative and communicational advocacy they support community based organizations throughout Argentina and much of South America. They are committed to stopping the deepening ecological and climatic collapse while accelerating actions towards a comprehensive and just socio-ecological transition.
