Humble Beginnings is a charity project launched in 2012 by Akbar McEntyre, a social worker who was born and raised in Paterson. Akbar recently received his Master’s degree in social work from Seton Hall University, and spends his time giving back to the city of Paterson through his work at Humble Beginnings.
“What makes Humble Beginnings unique is that we are a team of African American Muslims helping predominantly Black and Latino neighborhoods. This kind of work is not being done in this area. We have the credibility and the expertise to be able to really make a difference.” Akbar says.
