About This Fundraiser
For many North Korean refugees, successfully escaping the despotic Kim regime is only the first of many challenges they face. Some of these challenges include: overcoming immense culture shock; getting a quality education at university; and, attempting to adapt to the modern world.
An extremely important and effective way in which they can overcome these challenges is by learning English. With the English language, North Korean refugees have far greater chances to attend and excel in university, and to assimilate into South Korean and Western culture. TNKR is a non-profit organization that seeks to help North Korean refugees achieve these goals. TNKR matches volunteer native-speaking English tutors with North Korean refugees to provide private tutoring sessions.
Your donations will go a long way in ensuring that these refugees will have the learning materials and teaching help they need to pursue a better future, and most importantly, live a more fruitful and successful life in South Korea.
P.S., To my friends and family from the USA: 1000 Korean Won (₩1000) is equivalent to roughly 1 US dollar ($1.00)!
