The after-school program held at P.S. 199 consists of homework help and visual art instruction for Tibetan children in grades 2 through 4. The IRC is a non-profit humanitarian aid organization that aids refugees and survivors of international conflict. They assist new arrivals, many of whom come from refugee camps and war zones, to adjust to American society after being granted refugee status and invited by the U.S. government to live in the United States. The IRC also assists refugees through the immigration and naturalization process to become U.S. citizens. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
