Preserving and promoting the Uyghur language and culture across New England.

Welcome to Boston Uyghur School, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization in service to the cultivation of our communities and cultural identity across New England.

Founded and led by Uyghurs, Boston Uyghur School hosts regular community events in addition to our enriching language and culture classes for Uyghurs and non-Uyghurs alike.

Our Story

In 2017, the Chinese government began their genocide of the Uyghur people in Chinese-occupied East Turkestan. With our cultural identity being forcibly wiped away at home, Boston Uyghur School was founded in 2019 to preserve the Uyghur language and culture among our diaspora communities in New England. After two years of exclusively serving our Uyghur community, we’ve now expanded our vision to also foster Uyghur cultural appreciation among all people.

What We Do

Boston Uyghur School’s initiatives fall into two interconnected categories: preservation and promotion.


Boston Uyghur School functions as a place for Uyghurs across New England to gather and gain cultural nourishment. 

We aim to cultivate our surrounding Uyghur communities and play an active role in the preservation of the Uyghur identity in those communities.


Boston Uyghur School functions as a community center dedicated to fostering cultural appreciation among all people. 

We aim to encourage Americans who haven't previously heard of the Uyghur culture to partake in it—educating everyone on who we are and our place in the world.
Though we tirelessly strive towards making our grand vision a reality, Boston Uyghur School is ultimately a community-supported organization. Click below to learn more about supporting our cause and the Uyghur community.
