About This Fundraiser

North Korean Refugees already go through many hardships to escape their life in North Korea and reach South Korea. However, even after landing in South Korea, they still have challenges waiting for them. One of them is to catch up with the education system, in particular when it comes to learning English.
TNKR is an association that provides free 1:1 English tutoring to North Korean refugees to help them succeed in their new life, where I have volunteered as an English tutor. Your donations will allow the assocation to help more and more refugees study English, and will also help pay study café fees for me to teach my student in the best conditions. Thank you!

Les réfugiés venant de Corée du Nord doivent affronter de nombreux obstacles pour fuir leur pays et se rendre en Corée du Sud. Cependant, meme après etre arrivés en Corée du Sud, d'autres épreuves les attendent. L'une d'entre elles est de se rattraper au niveau de l'éducation, et en particulier pour ce qui est de l'apprentissage de l'anglais.
TNKR est une association qui offre aux réfugiés des cours particuliers en anglais pour leur permettre de réussir dans leur nouvelle vie, dans laquelle je me suis portée volontaire en tant que professeur d'anglais. Vos dons permettront à l'association d'aider toujours plus de réfugiés à étudier l'anglais, et contribueront également à la location d'un espace approprié pour enseigner à mon étudiante dans les meilleures conditions. Merci d'avance !

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.
