Burundian Refugee Stories
This four-page document educates service providers about the resettlement experiences of Burundian refugees. It uses the voices of Burundian immigrants to tell their stories of living in refugee camps, and their successful integration into the United States. Participants describe the importance of familiar foods from their home land, adjusting to the time change, living in an apartment, the role of organizations like Heartland Human Care Services in assisting with the transition, education for children, finding employment, and language difficulties experienced when adapting to American culture. The USCRI's complete Life Skills for Burundian Refugees resource is also available at www.refugees.org.
