WHAT WE DO!

We help to enrich society by championing language rights of Minority Indigenous Peoples and their historical and cultural context. We work to ensure that historical, cultural and linguistic differences are not barriers to individuals’ or groups’ access to socioeconomic or political opportunities. We support the revitalisation and development of Korring language as a recognised Minority Indigenous Language

Our History

As a respected non-profit organisation, we engage local communities and work in partnership with local and international historians and experts to research and document the history of Orring people of Nigeria

Our Culture

The Orring people of Nigeria sandwich amongst the Igbo communities in Ebonyi State Nigeria have very rich cultural heritage which are not celebrated. We promote Orring culture and help them to disseminate their rich cultural heritage.

Our Language

We believe that language is a key asset in a society. We promote Korring language  and work to preserve it and to prevent its extinction. We aim to transform Korring to a written language

VOLUNTEER

Help us provide critical support to one of the most vulnerable communities in the world.

Are you passionate about history, culture or language?  Do you have any interest in history, culture or language? Are you a historian, language expert, researcher, academician, campaigner, journalist, student? Do you believe that being born in a minority community with Minority Indigenous Language should not limit one’s access to opportunities that exists in society? Or you just want to learn about our work? Let’s hear from you, lets work together. We know that no single organisation can solve the complex set of issues contributing to disadvantage and language endangerment. That’s why we champion bigger thinking, bolder action, and partnerships that bring together expertise, ideas, tools and resources in support of the shared goal of enriching our world.

We at Orring Historical Society believe that:

  • Languages and cultures are important individual and societal resources
  • All languages, dialects, and cultures deserve to be respected and cultivated
  • Multilingualism is beneficial for individuals and society
  • Language and cultural differences should not be obstacles to personal or group success or wellbeing.
  • Language and cultures are important aspects of individual’s identity and should be respected
  • Language  and cultural knowledge should be valued in society
  • History helps us to develop a better understanding of the world
