Martin Mayiani, second from right, teaches a class on driving at a Presbyterian church in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Mayiani is a former refugee who came to the U.S. four years ago. He volunteers to teach these newly arrived Congolese refugees how to pass the state's driving test, which isn't available in Swahili. They use toy cars to understand the nuances of how to drive in the U.S. <br />

Mayiani and his students were resettled in the Harrisonburg area by Church World Service.<br />
