On our first meeting, Ebenlyn and her father (one of the founders for ORE Norway) had a presentation for us newcomers about what this group was about: "Welcome to ORE youth group. ORE stands for Outreach for rural education. We stand for education, respect for all, integration, involvement, inclusion and oneness. We want to bring youths together that will be supportive of one another. ORE is established in Norway and Africa. In Africa, our goal is that every child in every rural area should read, write, play and compute. And in Norway we bring people of different cultural background, to respect, include, involve, integrate and learn from one another. It is open to everyone regardless of culture, religion or race."
