Beyond the Headlines

With roughly four months of publishing new content under our belt, we're still finding our stride when it comes to the type of content you experience on
Our vision for Orato World Media is a platform that celebrates freelance journalists, the stories they tell, and the people whose stories we share. Our reach is international, and our stories find their home in categories as diverse as sports and conflict. But there is a thread that connects these stories and brings them together under our digital media umbrella.
Actually, it isn't a single thread but a bundle of threads. An Orato story should:
  • Evoke emotion as you experience the event alongside the interview subject
  • Bring you as the reader into the fold as every word adds a brushstroke to the vivid imagery painted by our freelance journalists
  • Find the unique amidst the mundane
An Orato story should bring us all together regardless of where we're reading, on what device we're experiencing content, or in what language we consume compelling first-person stories.
We aren't just building a media brand. We're building a community, and we couldn't be happier that you're here on the ground floor with us as we pursue the truth.

In case you missed it

Here are a few stories you may have missed that, we feel, highlight the potential of an Orato story.

Refugee aid

Innocent Haviyarimana fled Burundi for Kenya nearly a decade ago. Now, he's using the business and soap-making skills he's learned in Kakuma refugee camp to supply fellow refugees with cleaning products in a fight against COVID-19.

Risk of a new life

Following the loss of her father and the family business, Eida left Ethiopia to seek a future in South Africa. Her several-year journey, marred by xenophobia and fear, led her to restart the family business in her new home.

Hiding in plain sight

Keyla recounts, in great detail and humility, the plight of the overweight in Venezuela—the land of Miss Universe champions. Keyla's critical fight for equality is at times heartbreaking and inspiring.
