About This Fundraiser
Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is an organization I've been hoping to become involved with for a while, and in 2019 I'll finally have the opportunity to do so.
When North Korean refugees arrive in South Korea, they frequently find that their lack of English ability poses a barrier to receiving an education or entering the workforce. TNKR addresses this need by matching volunteer tutors with North Korean refugee English learners.
I've been personally impressed with TNKR's organization and professionalism as a small non-profit organization. Please consider making a donation in any amount, particularly as all donations this year will be doubled; read more about the matching donation drive below. Thanks.
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.
