About This Project
The NGO Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is very excited to meet students from the Asia Christian Schools Conference (ACSC)! Students attending the 2018 ACSC in Seoul will have the unique opportunity to learn about how to help North Koreans. 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.
