Sharing - Volunteers and
 the Somali Bantu

Much of the success of the resettlement of the Bantu and other refugees comes with the involvement of volunteers who offer time and resources to those in need.

 Just as volunteers offer information about life in America to the refugees, the Somali Bantu are also excited to have the chance to share aspects of their culture with the volunteers.  Here a Somali Bantu woman demonstrates some cultural dancing at a volunteer/refugee dinner.
