About This Fundraiser

Hello everyone,
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider donating. I have gained the wonderful opportunity to volunteer and teach English to North-Korean refugees. Why this cause is so special is because it might not always be considered how important it is to be integrating as a defector. Assimilating to this society, English is such an important, universal language that connects us all. For them, learning the language could help them realise their goals (most North-Koreans drop out of University because they fail English) or it may simply give them a chance to reach out and connect with all kinds of people of this world through English. That's why I think it's such a great cause and to directly give a contribution with my efforts would be great. In order to do so, I am asking you if you would like to help and contribute your own way too. Your donation directly would help me to provide a classroom for the North-Korean defectors for teaching, and it well help this organisation to be sustainable on the long term so that they can continue to run this amazing program! Thank you SO much if you'd decide to donate!! In return, I may give you some laughs, because I will perform an awkward dance for 2 minutes on the busiest square in Central Seoul and film it for your entertainment. Thank you again!!! PS: I will be doing the volunteering over the course of two months (then I need to leave Seoul) but your donation would provide long-term aid for this organisation to run as well!

About Matching session #97

Time AND a dime!

TNKR volunteers give their time to helping North Korean refugees seeking to improve their English. TNKR as an organization has been able to grow because of volunteers and fans also being willing to donate or fundraise for the organization.

The 14 volunteers who joined on October 27, 2019 not only have pledged to give their time, but three of them have become monthly donors and 8 of them have set up fundraisers to support TNKR.

Please scroll down to check out their fundraisers.

Their actions have inspired a Korean business couple who are fans of TNKR. They have pledged to match the donations raised by all of the tutors in this Matching session, up to 10 million won.
