Established in 1969, the Assyrian Australian Association (AAA), has played an important role with Assyrian immigrants in the Fairfield area, and has helped establish other institutions in the community.
The AAA’s objectives have been to strengthen the Assyrian community’s identity, while at the same time assisting new Assyrian migrants settle and integrate into Australian society.
The AAA’s current initiatives are:
The Assyrian Diqlat School, established in 1974, teaching the Assyrian language on Saturdays.
The Assyrian Rescource Centre (previously known as the Assyrian Welfare Office), established in 1984, assists new Assyrian migrants settle in Australia.
Echoes of Nineveh Community Radio Program on 2GLF 89.3FM. Originally broadcasted on 2EA in 1976, as the SBS Assyrian Language Program.
Rabi Nimrod Simono Scholarship, established in 1986 providing financial assistance for students matriculating into tertiary education. By 2006, $130,000 had been provided in scholarships.
