About This Fundraiser

Hi Everyone! SJ and I are getting married this year and we would love if people would donate to TNKR in place of big gifts! I have been involved with TNKR for the past year and have loved getting to learn about North Korea and the people who have lived there. At TNKR I have been able to tutor students, host a movie night, hear North Korean speeches, meet famous North Koran authors, and learn so much about refugees and the struggles they have. I hope that you can learn more about TNKR and donate to this organization so they can continue to be financially stable and help even more refugees in the future!

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.
