Who we are
BC Sarv was developed by a team of two. These individuals have deep ties to the community and bring a wealth of experience in community organizing, business, and digital marketing. Additionally, our numerous connections to different circles in Farsi-speaking communities allow us to connect to various circles and ensure that BC Sarv has a far reach.
Here's a little bit about us:
