The Chaldean Educational Center of America (henceforth CECA) is a non-profit organization 501C3, which was established in Michigan (1974 AD, 7275 K) as a cultural, educational, immigration, and social services organization.
Members of CECA envision a multi-dimensional perception of educational, cultural, human rights, research, information, and recreational centers for the Chaldean community and other groups from Iraqi origins in Metropolitan Detroit.
We seek to reach out to those folks and give them an alternative perspective on life in general and cater systematically for the needs of the rapidly expanding populations of Chaldeans as a result of immigration through culturally and educationally - oriented programs and events.
