About This Fundraiser

Both Trump and Kim will walk away declaring victory after the Singapore Summit. The real losers, however, will be the North Korean people who continue to suffer under the Kim regime. Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) helps those who have escaped share their voice with an international audience so that one day all in North Korea will know freedom. I ask that you donate to TNKR so that we can remember the real threat in North Korea is the widespread deprivation of human rights.

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.
