Hi everyone! I just joined here and I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction...

I work for a refugee resettlement agency and I am currently putting together a tutoring program with volunteers at a local library. The majority of our recently arrived families are from Burma, but I'm having a problem finding teaching resources that are in Karen (S'gaw Karen). I can't even find a good dictionary. If anyone has any good suggestions, I would really appreciate it!

I am also looking for materials in Arabic, Somali, and Kirundi/Swahili.

cheers,
Gloria

I see this post is from Jan. so not sure if you are still looking but you should check out White Lotus Press Publisher. Website:http://www.whitelotuspress.com

They have 2 books for Sgaw Karen, a spelling book and a 2 volume dictionary set.

I'm pretty sure they will ship to the USA. I know they are quite popular in bookshops in Thailand and with SEAsian academics here in the US.

Best Wishes! Very Happy

Here are some resources and links for more for the Somali community.

Check with your local library and they might order some of the materials.
