EMAHR’s work focuses on promoting multiculturalism and a sense of belonging among Ethiopians and Ethiopian Australians. With the intention to avoid the inter-ethnic conflict in Ethiopia resulting in tensions among the Ethiopian diaspora community in Australia.

With the intention to build social cohesion amongst Ethiopians in Australia and the wider Australian community, EMAHR staff and constituent members of the organisation will participate in a 2 day Positive Peace workshop, which will be facilitated by IEP. EMAHR will apply the Positive Peace framework to engage with their community members to strengthen resilience to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes activities to support physical and mental wellbeing , to keep communities connected and to present community led COVID -19 health communication in the Amharic and Oromo languages.
