Question 3. What is the main purpose of this online community?

The main purpose of Yehulum is to help create and maintain a community that is focused on providing various services to its members. The services would enable all members to have a vibrant community life and a strong sense of belonging, and would also help community members integrate very well into the Australian way of life. As an inclusive community that truly serves all of its members equally, the Yehulum will always be free from any political, racial or religious ties and biases.

To benefit its members and to facilitate their integration into the Australian way of life, Yehulum will actively promote access to services that are available by governments and other bodies. It will promote full participation by Victoria's Ethiopian community in the social, economic, cultural and political life of the wider Australian society. Yehulum will also develop and maintain co-operation with all tiers of government, professional or trade associations and Ethiopian community associations, clubs and other community bodies.
