“Why we do this is to help people fight for their rights – so that people can change their lives.”
Tariq was reading the Montreal Gazette one morning when he happened upon a short write-up about the work of Project Genesis. Originally from Pakistan, he’s now been a member of the Outreach team since June 2011. In addition to weekly door knocking, he has also volunteered in the Individual Services Storefront to help act as an interpreter between Storefront users and advisors when there have been language barriers.
On his involvement with Outreach, he says, “We go out every Thursday, making a little bit of an improvement in our society. We help people from different backgrounds and countries. Why we do this is to help people fight for their rights – so that people can change their lives.”
