“Organisasaun Haburas Moris” (OHM) which means ‘to develop life’, is a local NGO who fosters sustainable development at a grassroots level in the rural district of Bobonaro in Timor-Leste.
OHM sees at first hand the poverty, inequality, ecological and social destruction and distrust among communities as a result of many years of conflict.
We believe the essential ingredients to rebuild our country are Love and Forgiveness.
Love can motivate us share our resources, skills and knowledge to develop a good life for our people. It helps us acknowledge everyone’s equality regardless of differences in culture, race, religion or gender.
Forgiving the wrongdoing of the war times, helps us let go of resentment and move forward as a nation.
