GISHRU is a life changing journey to Assyria dedicated to connecting Assyrians living in the ancestral Homeland with Assyrians throughout the Diaspora, to preserving the vast Assyrian history, culture, and archaeological wonders, and ultimately, strengthening the Assyrian identity.

We believe that the connections made today will lead to a prosperous future for the Assyrian Nation.

Assyrians are the indigenous people of Assyria (modern day Iraq, southeast Turkey, northwest Iran and northeast Syria).

“GISHRU” means “Bridge” in the Assyrian language. It is our duty to bridge the ideas, resources, and beliefs of Assyrians worldwide all in unity of one common goal of preserving the culture, tradition and history of one of the first civilizations of the world.
