With traditional news media, your relationship with the organization starts and stops with the content you consume. At Orato World Media, we aren’t satisfied with that approach.
Journalism is facing a trust crisis in the digital era. From the proliferation of fake news to journalism that cares more about clicks than content, the problems facing newsrooms are clear, but the road to redemption is shrouded in fog. We recognize this news calamity and are working tirelessly to build a light capable of piercing that fog.
So, what exactly does Orato mean and what are we trying to accomplish?
We are the first organization dedicated entirely to verified first-person non-fiction stories. Beyond the English edition, we are one of the few organizations that provide multilingual content in our interview subjects’ native languages. We strive to bring people together to learn more about one another, because, no matter where we reside, we all share common values. We celebrate the important role journalists play in open democracies and engage freelancers on a platform that prioritizes the user experience.
The road to trust in the digital era is wrought with detours and dead ends. But we think it’s a road worth traveling. And we hope you do too.
How you can help
Whether you’re a journalist, a photographer, or a reader dedicated to our cause, we need your help.
We are investing more time, effort, and money into growing our legions of engaged and global freelance journalists, photographers, and videographers.
We compensate our freelancers for their work because they are our ears, eyes, and boots on the ground who verify the veracity of our stories and helping produce the stories so we can trust all the stories we read on Orato.
