ORRA is a movement of oil project affected persons in Hoima Uganda. The movement was founded in 2012 at the point of commencement of land acquisition and resettlement of the 7,118-oil refinery project affected people in Kabaale, Buseruka Hoima district with the aim of advancing community outcry over irregular, and human rights violations. Later in 2014, we registered as a community based organization by Hoima Local Government to promote human rights of oil project affected persons and environmental conservation amidst oil developments in the region.
The organization was formed following a community outcry when government of Uganda through Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development acquired 29 sq. Km of land and displaced 7,118 people from 13 villages in Kabaale parish, Buseruka sub county. Since then, we have been at the forefront to promote the rights of oil project affected people through sharing our experience especially with women and youth who in most cases are not fully engaged during the land acquisition processes like it was evidenced in our area in 2012.
