Nan Lian Khup, Stiven & Misa Looking for Work

For the last 5 months I have been making weekly trips to Graham Personnel  in Greensboro to help some of my friends to2014-01-09 15.53.42 find work.  It has been encouraging to see more jobs open up in the Triad.  I think with the changing in government in Raleigh we have seen more job opportunities in the Triad for our refugee families.  In this picture the tall man is Nan Lian Khup, the other man is Stiven and the woman is a young mother named Misa.  We headed up to Cornwallis Drive in G’boro this afternoon and the folks filled out application forms for about 40 minutes, then they had an interview with Paula.  They are all hoping to find work in High Point.

Nan Lian Khup and Stiven were some of my first friends among the Burmese arrivals.  We met about a year before I started this blog.   It was good to spend some time with them today.
