The Australian Oromo Community Association in Victoria (AOCAV) is a unique community organization established in 1984 by the first Oromo pioneers who migrated to Australia as refugees under the resettlement program with many other refugees from the Horn of Africa.
In its twenty-five year history, the AOCAV has had many challenges along the way. Numerous volunteers have contributed to the success and survival of the association. It has been a worthwhile effort as the association is now being lead by the generation that are born and raised in Australia. The vision of AOCAV is an empowered Oromo community that is able to fully integrate within the wider Australian society.
