Background

The guests represent a diverse group of Afghans, from sophisticated city-based fluent English speakers to rural people with limited exposure to other cultures. As authorized by the Department of State and through the provision of these activities, USCCB aims to promote dignity and resilience-building capacities among the guest community at Fort Dix.
