Life Skills for Burundian Refugees, Volume 2

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This 148-page guide gives service providers a program of life skills materials to assist the Burundian community in overcoming issues they may face after the initial resettlement period when they’ve become independent of the resettlement agencies that worked with them upon arrival in the United States. These materials can be used in groups with a facilitator to enhance the learning experience for participants and by encouraging further discussion and participatory activities while addressing their questions and concerns. The guide provides objectives, issues for further review, discussion topics, activities, and evaluation questions concerning eight topics: laws and rights, managing your money, using a bank, education, parenting, family communication skills, domestic violence, and alcohol abuse. Each topic is presented as an illustrated handout of culturally and linguistically appropriate material in Kirundi and English. These eight handouts educate and help orient Burundian refugees in their transition to life in the United States.
