About This Fundraiser
I am applying to work with an organization called Teaching North Korean Refugees, where native english speakers are paired up with North Korean refugees to help them work on their English skills. This is important for North Koreans to become more integrated into society and gives them a leg up on future employment. Funds are used to help this small organization continue its work and provide spaces for the one-on-one tutoring sessions. Any donations are greatly appreciated!
"What should be done about North Korea?" "How can we help North Koreans and North Korean refugees?" TNKR has put those questions to refugees studing in the organization. Several refugees are now developing projects, with assistance from TNKR volunteers, to create and develop orginal and authentic projects related to North Korea.
TNKR learners are in charge of the projects, developing leadership and management skills. They can also develop projects giving advice to others who want to increase freedom for North Koreans still in North Korea or to help North Koreans adjust to living in the outside world.
