|“Being A Refugee Is A Condition, Not An Identity.”|
"In the last three decades of the U. S. Refugee Resettlement
Program, more than four million refugees have been admitted to the country.
In the U.S., resettlement is accomplished
through a public–private partnership in which the U.S. government
works with private, primarily faith based organizations. The United States has a successful refugee integration program, which mainly focuses on self-sufficiency
and the management of expectations. In an effort to reach this goal, the U.S. government funds an orientation, which
provides information about a range of topics like U.S. laws, enrolling children in school, gender equality, and public transportation, with primary emphasis
being placed on the importance of employment."1
"Although there is an established refugee resettlement program in the United States, the program has been criticized for not supporting refugees sufficiently to put them on paths to professional or economic success. This project will mainly be focusing on the practices of refugee resettlement processes as well as how to improve the opportunities for self-sufficiency, especially of refugee women in the United States, particularly in the New River Valley and Roanoke areas."1
"The project focus is in collecting information from refugees and refugee resettlement agencies in the process of refugees’ integration into the American society. While students are collecting data in this project, they are expected to volunteer for the foundations as participant observers. The volunteering opportunities are including but not limited to teaching English, help refugees to find jobs, assist paperwork, find work-appropriate clothing etc."1
"It is expected to present this project at CSW 64 (The Commission on the Status of Women organized by United Nations Women) conference in March 2020 in New York."1
