Watch Video: Serving Others, Memoirs of Muslim Seniors

With funding from the Federal Government's new Horizons for Seniors Program, the Muslim Seniors Circle of Halton/Peel (MSC), together with project partner, the Tessellate Institute, produced a video documentary, Serving Others: Memoirs of Muslim Seniors (SOMMS). Featuring four Muslim seniors with a lifetime of extraordinary volunteer experiences the documentary aims to promote volunteerism among seniors and members of other generations.

To encourage community engagement in the project the documentary was publicly screened at three venues in the GTA: the Islamic Centre of Canada (ISNA), the Sayeda Khadija Centre, and the Islamic Institute of Toronto. Following the screening audience members participated in panel discussions with the protagonists.
