About This Fundraiser

저희는 페이스북을 통한 손글씨 릴레이로 홍보와 모금유도를 하기로 했습니다. 문구는 다음과 같습니다.

탈북민을 위한 영어교육
탈북민의 권리실현을 위한 첫걸음

000은 TNKR과 함께합니다.

1. TNKR이란?

TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees)은 교육적인 부분에서 탈북민 커뮤니티에 실질적인 변화를 주고자 설립된 봉사단체입니다. 현재 진행되고 있는 활동으로는 1:1 원어민 영어 튜터링, 스피치 지도, 펀드레이징이 있습니다. TNKR과 그 활동에 대해 더 알고 싶으신 분은 www.teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org를 방문해주시면 감사하겠습니다.

2. 왜 하필 영어교육?

한국취업시장에서 경쟁력을 갖기 위해서 영어는 필수입니다. 하지만 탈북민들의 29%는 영어공부 때문에 휴학을 하고 있고, 57%는 자신에게 가장 부족한 과목이 영어라고 말하고 있습니다. 이에 단체에서는 탈북민들을 위해 영어교육을 실시하고 있습니다.

Hi, we are doing a handwriting rally fundraising project on Facebook for TNKR! We would tag other people and they would post a picture of their handwriting of the following quote on Facebook

English Education for North Korean Refugees

The first step for defending North Korean Refugees’ rights

1. What is TNKR?
TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in the refugee community. Our main activities are one-on-one individualized English tutoring, speech coaching, and fundraising.

2. Why English Education?

English is essential in ordered to get employed in the Korean job market. However 29% of the North Korean Refugees are taking a leave from their studies because of English and 57% answered that English is their weakest subject. Therefore at TNKR we are focused on English Education for North Korean Refugees.

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 South 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
