About This Fundraiser

Hello, Teach North Korean Refugees is an NGO which helps NK refugees to learn English. This organization matches volunteer English tutor with a refugee on 1 on 1 tutor sessions. Teachers help with general English, university English materials and sometimes just everyday English speech. English is an essential skill for the refugees to adjust to South Korean society or in anywhere as a matter of fact.
The amount of donation does not matter. Please take time to know about TNKR and if you have time, consider a donation and your support for TNKR would mean very much to us.

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 more than 250 refugees with 492 volunteer tutors and coaches.
