About This Fundraiser

Why do North Korean Refugees Join TNKR?

We have learned a lot in our 1:1 interviews and feedback sessions with refugees. We have identified five main categories of refugees who join us so they can study English.”

The categories of refugees and/or reasons why they joined included:

1) College students and those applying for college.
2) Refugees with established careers who want to improve business, professional and international opportunities.
3) Employers in South Korea expect English language proficiency.
4) Self-improvement and gaining independence, for example to travel.
5) Gaining public speaking skills in order to raise awareness about human rights abuses, discuss their escapes, and inform others about refugee issues.

Refugee Student Feedback about TNKR

TNKR students are regularly asked to assess TNKR’s program via interviews and surveys with TNKR staff. The following themes are evident in refugees’ feedback and are often shared with audiences at TNKR informational events:

1) One-to-one class ratio is more productive than group classes in private institutions.
a. The learning goals of each individual refugee is the focus of each session.
b. Refugees feel comfortable asking questions in one-on-one situations.

2) Refugees want volunteers to use English only (no Korean language use by volunteers).

3) Refugees experience a process of struggle that leads to real achievement.

4) Refugees report that volunteers are dedicated, responsible, patient, and prepared.

5) Refugees indicate gaining confidence in their English language abilities.

6) Refugees report gaining new experiences because of improved language abilities:
a. Opportunities to study abroad.
b. Ability to travel abroad.
c. Increased capacity to talk with native English speakers.
d. Increased opportunities to speak publically about life experiences.

About TNKR 2019 Matching Donation Challenge

Originally named "English Matching," Teach North Korean Refugees has helped almost 400 North Korean refugees with adjusting to living outside of North Korea. We have done this on a tight budget, relying on our volunteers and fans. Despite our limitations, we have had a number of success stories and are a non-profit that North Korean refugees seek out.

We now have a fan who has offered us the most ambitious matching donation challenge. He says that in 2019, he will raise more money than I have for TNKR. Please accept this challenge along with me! He is in the finance industry, and confident he can twist enough arms to help us become more financially stable.

To be clear: your donations to this fundraising page will be matched. Doubled. If you give $100, it will become $200. If you give $500, it will become $1,000. If you give $5 a month, it will become $10 a month.

These donations are tax-deductible in the USA and South Korea.

If you have trouble donating via this website then contact me directly for other options. TNKR@teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org or CJL@alumni.harvard.edu

TNKR 2019 寄付額倍増チャレンジ

プロジェクトについて

もともと「イングリッシュ・マッチング」の名前で活動していた、現在のTeach North Korean Refugees は、400 人を超える北朝鮮難民の外国生活をサポートしてきました。予算が限られている中で、ボランティアやサポーターの方々のおかげでこのプロジェクトは実現しています。このような制約の中でも、私たちはいくつものサクセス・ストーリーを生み出しており、北朝鮮難民が拠り所とする非営利団体として活動しています。

一人のサポーターの方が、他の方が払った寄付金と同額を払うことで、史上最高の目標額達成を目指す寄付額倍増チャレンジを提案してくれました。彼は、私が現在用意しているTNKRの資金よりも多い額の資金を2019年の1年で調達すると宣言したのです。ぜひこのチャレンジに私と一緒に参加してください。彼は金融業界で働いており、TNKRがより財政的に安定できるようなサポートを提供するのに必要な協力を得られるはずだと確信しています。

ここで明確にしておきたいことは、このファンドレイジングでいただいた寄付は2倍になるということです。例えば、100ドル寄付すると、寄付額は200ドルに、500ドルの寄付なら1,000ドルになります。毎月5ドル寄付すれば、毎月10ドルの寄付額になります。

ここでの寄付は、アメリカと韓国において課税控除対象となります。

ウェブサイトからの寄付ができない場合は、下記メールアドレスまで直接お問い合わせください。他の寄付方法をご案内します。

Le défi des dons jumelés de TNKR 2019

À propos de ce projet

Teach North Korean Refugees, initialement appelé « English Matching », a aidé plus de 400 réfugiés nord-coréens à s'adapter à leur nouvelle vie. Nous y sommes parvenus malgré un budget serré, en nous appuyant sur l'aide de nos bénévoles et de nos fans. En dépit des difficultés, notre organisation à but non lucratif a connu un certain nombre de réussites et est très recherchée par les réfugiés nord-coréens.

Un de nos fans nous a récemment lancé un défi des plus ambitieux en matière de dons jumelés. Il prétend pouvoir collecter plus de fonds que moi pour TNKR en 2019. Qui veut relever ce défi avec moi ? Ce fan, qui travaille dans le secteur de la finance, est persuadé qu'il peut nous aider à devenir plus stables financièrement.

En clair, tous les dons que vous verserez à cette page de collecte de fonds seront jumelés. Doublés. Donc si vous faîtes don de 100 $, ce montant sera au final de 200 $. Si vous donnez 500 $, 1 000 $. Un don de 5 $ par mois lui correspondra à 10 $.

Ces dons sont déductibles d'impôt aux Etats-Unis et en Corée du Sud.

Si vous rencontrez des difficultés pour faire un don via ce site, n'hésitez pas à me contacter directement pour d'autres options à TNKR@teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org ou à CJL@alumni.harvard.edu

Desafio de doações dobradas da TNKR 2019

Sobre este projeto

Originalmente chamado "English Matching", o Teach North Korean Refugees ajudou mais de 400 refugiados norte-coreanos a se adaptarem a viver fora da Coreia do Sul. Fizemos isso com um orçamento apertado, contando com nossos voluntários e fãs. Apesar de nossas limitações, tivemos várias histórias de sucesso e somos uma organização sem fins lucrativos muito procurada pelos refugiados norte-coreanos.

Um de nossos fãs nos ofereceu o desafio de doação mais ambicioso até agora: Ele diz que em 2019, ele vai arrecadar mais dinheiro do que eu tenho para TNKR. Vamos lá, aceite este desafio comigo! Ele trabalha no setor financeiro e está confiante de que pode convencer gente suficiente a nos ajudar a alcançar nossa estabilidade financeira.

Para deixarmos claro: suas doações nesta página de angariação de fundos serão dobradas. Se você doar US$100, ela se tornará US$200. Se você doar US$500, se tornará US$1.000. Se você der US$5 por mês, ela se tornará US$10 por mês.

Essas doações são isentas de tributação, tanto nos Estados Unidos quanto na Coreia do Sul.

Se você tiver alguma dificuldade ao doar pelo site, entre em contato: TNKR@teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org ou CJL@alumni.harvard.edu
