Our Team

GISHRU would only be a figment of one's imagination without the volunteer time and efforts by the Board of Directors.

Through GISHRU, we envision the rising generation in the Diaspora to not only be tangibly connected with the Assyrian ancestral homeland and become effective advocates of the Assyrian cause, but also one day reside there.
