How Your Host Influences your Life in America After Winning Green Card


How Your Host Influences your Life in America After Winning a Green CardStudying, living, and working abroad in the United States can be a transformative and rewarding experience, but it also comes with its unique set of challenges, especially for international students. Bob Mwiti, with his invaluable insights and experience in The KENYA Airlift Program, provides essential guidance that not only helps navigate the complexities of studying abroad but also lays the foundation for a successful life in the US.

One of the pivotal aspects of studying abroad is the support system, particularly from the first person who offers assistance as a host in America if one relocates through the green card lottery program. This support goes beyond just hospitality; it plays a vital role in helping international students find suitable employment, providing the necessary guidance to settle into a new life, and bridging the gap between aspirations and the practicalities of living in the US.

Recently, the program introduced the Permanent Residents Program through the green card lottery option, seeking to help qualified Kenyans navigate the intricacies surrounding the whole process right from applying for the green card lottery to smooth settling in the US. This assistance includes unsecured relocation funding, finding a host, funding for relocation expenses, finding a good job, and locating suitable schools for children.
