About This Fundraiser

Founded in March 2013, Teach North Korean Refugees has connected 290 North Korean Refugees with 597 volunteer tutors and coaches. The organization was recognized in July 2016 as an official NGO, it completely relies on donations generated by volunteers and fans.

TNKR (Teach North Korean Refugees)은 2013년 3월 시작하였고 현재까지 총 290명의 탈북민들과 597명의 원어민 자원봉사자 선생님들을 연결해 주었습니다. 2016년 7월 “북한이탈주민글로벌교육센터”로서 서울시 비영리단체 지위를 취득한 TNKR 의 모든 활동은 전적으로 자원봉사자들과 후원자들의 소중한 후원 및 지지가 있기에 가능합니다.

So far this fundraiser has generated two successful Matching Gift opportunities for TNKR.

TNKR began as a humble gathering in March 2013 when we matched a handful of North Korean refugees with volunteer tutors in Seoul. Since then, more than 280 refugees have studied with more than 580 volunteer tutors and coaches.
TNKR은 2013년 3월 5명의 탈북민들과 원어민 자원봉사자 선생님들을 연결해 주는 작은 모임에서 시작되었습니다. 그 후 지속적인 성장을 통해 280명 이상의 탈북민들과 580명 이상의 원어민 자원봉사자 선생님들을 연결해주는 성과를 거두었습니다.

English is important to helping refugees access opportunities in South Korea. According to one study, 32 percent of refugees drop out of school because of problems with English (that's even higher than 28 percent who dropped out to earn money). Of refugees who said they considered dropping out, another 33 percent cited English as a reason. English is needed for employment tests in South Korea, so many refugees get eliminated almost immediately.
영어 능력은 탈북민들의 적응 및 정착을 위해 매우 중요합니다. 한 연구결과에 의하면 탈북대학생들이 휴학 및 자퇴 이유로 ‘영어공부를 하고 다시 학교에 돌아오기 위해서’(32%) 가장 높았습니다. (‘생활비 마련을 위해’ 휴학 및 자퇴한 28%보다도 높았음.) 자퇴 및 제적을 경험하지 않은 탈북대학생들 중 중도탈락을 고려한 가장 큰 이유는 ‘영어때문에(33.3%)’ 이라고 답변했습니다. 영어 능력은 대한민국에서 성공적인 취업을 위해 필수적으로 요구되고 있으며, 적지 않은 탈북민들이 영어때문에 취업기회를 얻지 못하고 있습니다.
After our recent trip to the UK, we learned that refugees there are also struggling with English. We hope that we can provide support for refugees there.

최근 영국 방문을 통해 해외에서도 많은 탈북민들이 영어로 어려움을 겪고 있다는 사실을 확인했습니다. TNKR은 추후 영국 내 탈북민들에게도 영어 능력 향상기회를 제공할 수 있기를 희망하고 있습니다.
