About This Fundraiser

◆Why we donate for Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center - TNKR◆
// TNKR (탈북민 영어교육 봉사 단체)에 기부를 하는 이유
Not many people know about the reality of North Korea. Kim Jeong Eun or the nuclear weapons are not everything about this country.
If North Korean refugees can speak English, they could make a great and heartbreaking speech like Yeonmi Park (https://youtu.be/ufhKWfPSQOw) and raise awareness of the people of North Korea. She learned English at TNKR.
// 많은 사람들이 북한을 떠올릴때 김정은, 또는 세뇌당하거나 세상과 단절된 북한사람들 혹은 연변마저 떠올립니다. 북한사람들도 다같은 사람들이며 극소수를 제외하면 지금 이순간 까지도 참담한 현실을 겪고 있는 국제 난민이나 같습니다. 탈북민이 영어를 자유롭게 구사할수 있다면 https://youtu.be/ufhKWfPSQOw 영상의 박연미씨와 같이 강단에 설수 있고, 세계를 향해 목소리를 높일수 있습니다. 저희가 이번에 기부할곳으로 선정한 TNKR 은 탈북민에게 무료 영어교육을 하는 단체로서, 박연미씨가 영어를 배운 곳이기도 합니다.

About Sponsor a North Korean refugee intern

In 2020, one of TNKR's main goals will be engaging with North Korean refugees seeking employment and education opportunities.

As part of the initiative, TNKR hopes to hire North Korean refugees as interns in our office. We will offer refugees 500,000 won a month to intern with us.

Some of the students in TNKR have offered to intern for free or for miniumum amounts, as thanks, but we think it will be more meaningful for them and more of a commitment if they were paid at least a minimum amount.

You can help by becoming a monthly donor to this project. The more money we raise, the more interns we can employ (although three would probably be the maxiumum at any given time).

In addition to monthly donors, any donations could help this project.
