The NGO Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is very excited to work with students from the Asia Christian Schools Conference (ACSC)! Students attending the 2018 ACSC in Seoul will learn about how to help North Korean refugees. Further, ACSC students will hear from, and in some cases volunteer with North Korean refugees.
Many students at the ACSC will visit the volunteer-based nonprofit organization Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR), meet and hear from college-level English-speaking North Korean refugees, and participate in a meaningful service project.
Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is a volunteer-based nonprofit NGO that empowers North Korean refugees to find their own voice and path through education, advocacy, and support.

To help North Korean refugees adjust to life in South Korea, continue to allow TNKR to provide free English language learning opportunities for refugees, and pay for our education center, TNKR relies on donations. We invite you to support TNKR by sharing this fundraiser or setting up your own.
Thank you for your support!
