Description

We were resettled in Harrisburg starting from 2008,and now the population is over five thousands only in Harrisburg.The population is increasing everyday. About 80% of our elderly population are illiterate,and never been educated about the technology,systems,diverse culture,and legal system of this great nation. This may zeopardize them in any time. We are therefore,organized to act as a moderator to decrease all this possible disasters that may come in future.

Primary goal is to establish a community center where all groups of people can come together,share their sorrow and pains to their fellow refugees.Suicidal cases among the refugee population is increasing every year,and we would lide to decrese this trend by reaching to our people to find their needs or problems. To achieve this,we need a common center where we can gather our people everyday,talk in their own language,have fun,and decrese their stress.Same time,they may share any problems they may have to the people who they trust.

We are hard working people,and we have got a great credit from US government,and its people.We would like to give it back by educating our people about how can we be a great resource for this country as a true citizens.
