About This Fundraiser
저희는 페이스북을 통한 손글씨 릴레이로 홍보와 모금유도를 하기로 했습니다. 문구는 다음과 같습니다.

000은 TNKR과 함께합니다.
TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees)은 교육적인 부분에서 탈북민 커뮤니티에 실질적인 변화를 주고자 설립된 봉사단체입니다. 현재 진행되고 있는 활동으로는 1:1 원어민 영어 튜터링, 스피치 지도, 펀드레이징이 있습니다. TNKR과 그 활동에 대해 더 알고 싶으신 분은 www.teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org를 방문해주시면 감사하겠습니다.
2. 왜 하필 영어교육?
한국취업시장에서 경쟁력을 갖기 위해서 영어는 필수입니다. 하지만 탈북민들의 29%는 영어공부 때문에 휴학을 하고 있고, 57%는 자신에게 가장 부족한 과목이 영어라고 말하고 있습니다. 이에 단체에서는 탈북민들을 위해 영어교육을 실시하고 있습니다.

1. What is TNKR?
TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in the refugee community. Our main activities are one-on-one individualized English tutoring, speech coaching, and fundraising.

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.
