Uyghur Academy Boston Sunday School

We are raising money to support a Boston-area Uyghur Sunday school and to purchase children's books to create a Uyghur language library. This school is run by the Uyghur Academy. Our efforts are in response to the current dire situation of Uyghurs in China. Uyghurs are a Turkic-speaking ethnic group living in the East Turkestan/Xinjiang region in China. Most of the 11 million Uyghurs practice Islam and as a result of their distinct ethnic and religious identity, the Uyghur community is being targeted by the Chinese government. The Chinese government has established concentration camps and has unjustifiably imprisoned many Uyghurs and sought to suppress Uyghur culture. As part of our efforts to support Uyghurs during this time, we want to support the cultural continuation of the community. The school is run by Uyghur individuals who are living in the Boston area, and your support of the library project assists their work to share knowledge about Uyghur history, practice, and culture. We aim to raise $1200 to support the costs of children's books for the Uyghur Academy classes.
