Team Leader; Refugee Welfare Field Manual.
The preparatory manual is one of a series produced by the Refugee Welfare Training Team in Qui Nhon, Binh-Dinh Province, Vietnam, for use in training teams of government personnel to work with refugees. The purpose was to improve living conditions, overcome lethargy and despair, develop a community structure, engage group action, and prepare for living in secured villages. This guide outlines methods and procedures for emergency as well as more stable conditions. The ten week course is administered by the staff of the Community Development Foundation under contract with the United States Agency for International Development in cooperation with the Ministry of Social Welfare and Refugees. The team leader's duty is to provide direction, guidance, and support to team members; and technical assistance, material aid, and moral support to refugees; and to ensure the implementation of social welfare policy in the field. Emphasis is on cooperation with community officials, other government and voluntary agencies, and armed forces, both domestic and foreign. The manual includes a profile of the refugee, instruction in team management, program management, and organization services, a test on course content, and charts illustrating the power structure at various levels.
