Hello, my name is Evelyn Serbout. Happily married to my husband Abdallah from Morocco. Together, we have 3 lovely children. I am the Founder/CEO of Outreach Program Canada (OPC). I am originally from the Philippines. I have been fortunate to have lived most of my adult life in different countries, and today, I am immensely proud to call myself Filipino-Canadian. I grew up from a big family with 10 siblings. My parents were part of World War II generation - the Japanese/American regime. Education then only belongs to the fortunate ones. Our life growing up was full of hardship and adversities which became my motivation to fuel my hopes and dreams. My parents were very articulate on the importance of education. I knew right there and then that education will be the only way for us to rise from poverty. As such, I am a proud administrative professional! Business Administration, Human Resources Management and Project Management are few of my educational attainment. I was a government employee, now, a proud retired at 55. In this organization, I am advocating two things that are extremely important to me: education and giving back. I know how children feels when they go to school hungry; I know how it feels to surge from nothing to something; I know how it feels to have empty hands turned into loving, helping hands. I am blessed to be surrounded by generous, humble, and committed group of individuals. They say I inspire them, but the truth is they inspire me. I am super proud of my OPC team and the works we do.
