Beyond the Headlines

If you follow us on social media, you've likely seen an increase in new, exciting, and engaging content. If you don't follow us on social media, now is the time. We post several times per day, whether it's submission requests, freelance opportunity updates, or new stories.
We're approaching 30 new stories published on Orato since we resumed editorial efforts this fall. That number represents a milestone for us. It means that our audience is growing, and our freelance journalists believe in the work we are doing.

The past two weeks saw multiple freelance journalists return to Orato for their second stories while countless new writers claimed their first Orato article.

What that means for you is growth in our ability to tell stories that matter. It means we can read more articles that challenge our worldviews. It means we can all benefit from more tales of courage, hope, and dreams.
We couldn't be happier that you're joining us as we prepare to cross that  initial threshold. Together, we're building towards a more informed, more engaged future.

In case you missed it

As our reach grows, so too does our access to stories. It's because of this access that we heard the story of an 85-year-old marathoner who began running at age 72. We heard several perspectives of Kenya's rampant fat-shaming among children and witnessed the violence of election riots in Uganda.
Here are three stories you may have passed by in the daily news storm. And believe us, these are not stories you want to miss.

Team Lioness

We are eight strong women from small communities who fight not only for our environment and wildlife but for all Kenyan women.

Great heights

Polio took away my ability to walk unimpeded, not my ability to dream. In 2015, I did something I once thought impossible: I climbed the Himalayas. I am Juan Maggi.

Typhoon floods Philippines

We thought Typhoon Vamco wouldn't be a concern for us. We live in a region not prone to flooding. We were wrong. This is what happened when we, like so many others, ignored the warnings.
