Language barriers during resettlement can frustrate refugees and service providers alike. CORE’s refugee-facing resources are designed to ease communication with refugees by providing preliminary USRAP and Cultural Orientation knowledge in their own languages. Available on CORE’s Resettlement Navigator website, CORE’s fact sheets, videos, and podcasts are now available in Kinyarwanda and Swahili, in addition to English and Arabic. Some resources are also available in Farsi and Somali.

CORE’s Settle In mobile app, originally launched in English and Arabic, has also been updated with Kinyarwanda and Swahili versions. Settle In is a mobile travel companion that provides refugees with relevant, just-in-time Cultural Orientation information. It encourages refugees to interact with a variety of learning activities throughout their resettlement journey. Settle In is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play. Make sure you have the latest version on your phone and let your refugee applicants and clients know how they can download the app for free too.
