Tajiks, along with other ethnic groups originally from Afghanistan, have experienced wartime trauma since the 1980s without a foreseeable end to the fighting in sight.
As historical descendants of the Iranian people, this people group originally comes from the nation of Tajikistan, who previously migrated to Afghanistan. Tajik people are fleeing Afghanistan, finding more peaceful and sustainable atmospheres in such nations as Canada.
After relocating to Canada, Tajiks have left behind qishlaqs, settlements numbering as few as 200 and as many as 700 single-family house constructed close to irrigation canals or riverbanks. The close-knit community is what Tajiks strive to reconstruct.
A large percentage of Tajiks practice Islam from the Sunni Hanafi school.
Newly resettled Tajiks may be limited with their educational and professional opportunities if they do not speak English or French. Whether having moved to Canada recently or the move was several years ago, many Tajiks desperately need trauma counseling from their first-hand experiences and survival of such events.
Pray for the Tajiks to receive the educational, professional and psychological assistance they
Pray for spiritual hunger among the Tajiks that will lead them to the cross and the empty grave.
Pray for Canadian believers to compassionately reach out to the Tajik communities.
Pray for a disciple making movement to emerge among Tajik communities in each city where they currently reside.
