About Rinyo

"Rinyo" (idea, thought, concept) is an international non-profit, non-denominational organisation founded in 2012 by Dr. Robby Edo with the aim of confronting the endangerment of the Syriac language. Rinyo’s global team of dedicated professionals have collectively contributed to the organisation’s growth and in becoming a world-leading hub for the celebration, education and preservation of the Syriac language. Since its inception, Rinyo has introduced various innovative cellular applications, interactive online content, resources and print material in the Eastern and Western dialects targeting various age groups across our global community. Digital technology plays an imperative role in the preservation process, most notably as it readily allows for the storage and dissemination of content to a vast global Syriac-speaking community. Dr. Edo informs us that the group aspires in expanding its already comprehensive database by including other dialects in the near future.
