New York City program helps refugee kids prepare for school
from PBS Newshour
When she first arrived in New York City from the West African nation of Guinea three years ago, 18-year-old Binta Diallo says that she and her siblings had difficulty even setting foot outside their apartment. "We don't know where were going ... Everybody feel very sad. Like, knowing they left everybody in their country and then came here," she said. Because she didn't speak English, Diallo worried that she wouldn't be able to keep up with other students when she began attending school that fall.
