The World Assembly of Assyrian Youth, also commonly known by its acronym WAAY, is an independent not-for-profit global organization. The organization’s primary objective is to act as a global platform for Assyrian youth and to encourage their active networking and participation. WAAY also encourages inclusivity and drives strategic organizational partnerships globally so to network with like-minded non-Assyrian youth organizations.
