An Organization and Welcome Guide for Groups Sponsoring Indochinese Refugees. Publication 3.
This guide addresses itself to individuals or groups wanting to help with Vietnamese resettlement. It is noted that there is a distinct advantage to group sponsorship because the costs of support are spread and it allows for extended maintenance while the language is learned and jobs are located. The first part of the guide outlines: (1) the steps to be taken in order to set up a sponsorship program, including suggestions for leadership, organization, meetings, headquarters, and publicity; (2) the functions of the sponsorship program, including public relations, fund raising, jobs, housing, food, clothing, recruitment of volunteers, and reception and (3) the setting up of learning opportunities, which include language classes, a business and professional council, and social and cultural orientation. Addendum 1 discusses more specifically some of the topics treated in the outline. Names and addresses of people or organizations that have information on particular areas are given throughout the outline. Addendum 2 is a menu for a full Vietnamese meal, with recipes. (TL)
