About This Fundraiser

Happy Holidays to all dear! I will be volunteering at Teach North Korean Refugees during my short-term back home in Seoul, and I am asking for donations from those who are able to. TNKR is a non-profit organization that does much more than teaching English to North Korean Refugees. Volunteers also help with support, friendship, coaching and networking; a vital tool and opportunity for North Korean Refugees. Basically, TKNR is a great asset for North Korean Refugees to use and it is a non-profit.

Once again I am asking for all to tap into their Holiday spirit and donate to Teach North Korean Refugees. If you are a not-so-wealthy college student like me, even $4, the same price as a cup of coffee, can still help contribute to this organization. And if $4 still doesn't seem like a lot, just remember that it is $4 that is going directly to help North Korean Refugees

About General Fund

In November 2016, the Ministry of Unification in South Korea reported that the number of North Korean refugees escaping to South Korea had surpassed 30,000. Various media report various challenges that refugees face in adjusting to South Korea. An estimated 35 percent of refugees are unemployed, 80 percent work in menial jobs, and refugees who are employed earn 50% of what South Koreans earn.

Escaping North Korea is the first battle many refugees face. Many report that English is a major barrier for many of them, as they struggle with "Konglish" words that have seeped into the South Korean language. TNKR helps refugees by connecting them with volunteer tutors. Since its founding in March 2013, TNKR has connected 315 refugees with more than 650 volunteer tutors and coaches.
