Planning for the end of Sponsorship Preparing for Month 13

The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program, and Lifeline Syria, is conducting a workshop for new and experienced sponsors on Month 13 Planning.

 Attendees will learn about:

  • The post-sponsorship relationship and the dynamics of this relationship
  • When sponsors need to start preparing newcomers for Month 13; and
  • The role of sponsors during the "transition period," including important tasks to consider.
