Shlama Foundation

Connecting the Diaspora to the Homeland



Who WE Are | our values

YOUTH-BASED
We firmly believe in the power of the youth! Compassionate, united and tech-savvy, the youthful zeal of Shlama has driven a culture of volunteerism in both the diaspora and the homeland.


UNITY
Shlama is strictly non-political and humanitarian-focused. Here at the Shlama Foundation, we have a humanitarian purpose that we believe everyone can agree on. As long as you share our values and our vision, we would love to work with you! We strive to be a model of cooperation with churches and NGOs, as we believe a collective effort will yield a synergistic effect.

​​​WHO WE ARE | our VISION

We envision a thriving homeland for the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac people that is strongly connected to the diaspora through the act of giving.

More About US

​​WHO WE ARE | our MISSION

The Shlama Foundation’s mission is to engage the diaspora to fund humanitarian aid and other community projects that will help the Assyrian Chaldean Syriac people live and prosper in their ancestral homeland.

TRANSPARENCY

We have been dedicated to transparency since day one. Unsurprisingly, one of the most common questions we receive is, “How do I know where my money is going?” In order to answer this question, we provide public donation listings, receipts, photos and videos documenting each and every project. This information is available online for every project we have every completed.

 
QUALITY OF LIFE
We believe everyone has the right to live peacefully and with dignity. Shlama strives to improve the quality of life in the Nineveh Plains through Community Development, Youth Activities & Education, Cultural Preservation, Supporting Our TroopsHousing andEmergency Response.


CONNECTED

See the homeland like you never have before! One of our most important values is bridging the gap between the diaspora and the homeland. No longer must you wonder what life is like "back home". Through the use of various media, Shlama provides those in the diaspora with an in depth look at the lives of people living throughout the homeland.
