About This Fundraiser

Teach North Korean Refugees (탈북민 영어교육 프로그램) 은 영어에 어려움을 겪고있는 북한분들에게 많은 도움을주고 있으며, 꿈과 희망을 실어주고 있습니다. 탈북민들은 한국에서 영어라는 큰 장벽으로 인해 대학교, 직장등에서 어려움을 겪고 그로인해 학업까지도 종종 포기하는 경우가 있습니다. 그러나 그들은 탈북민 일대일 영어교육 프로그램을 통하여 영어에 대한 공포증을 해소하고 자신감도 많이 되찾고 있습니다.
탈북민들이 마음껏 배우고 새로운 환경에 잘 적응 할 수 있도록 여러분들의 도움이 필요합니다.
여러분의 작은 섬김이 통일로 가는 지름길이라고 생각합니다! 통일은 멀리에 있지않으며 바로 당신 곁에 있습니다^^

Teach North Korean Refugees (English education program for North Korean refugees) provides help to those who have trouble with English, and also supports them with dream and hope. North Korean refugees often find English as a large barrier that makes their college studies and job environment difficult, and in some cases they even stop their pursuit of education. Fortunately, TNKR is helping them learn English in 1 on 1 education programs that reduce their fear for English and in turn boost their confidence.
We need your support to enable North Korean refugees to learn as much as they can and adapt better to the new environment.
We believe that each one of your support will lead to reunification of our lands. Reunification is not too far away; it is right around the corner.^^

About Matching Donation Alert

This page will announce Matching Donation Opportunities for TNKR. To convert to US $, click the drop-down menu at the top to change from Korean Won to US dollars.

So far this fundraiser has generated two successful Matching Gift opportunities for TNKR. We now have two opportunities that will be wrapped into one!

Opportunity 3:
When: Launching July 1 (but donations raised now can also be added to the total retroactively)!
What: The law firm of Shin and Kim has offered a 2 million won donation ($1,767) to TNKR to help us with the speech contest.
Status: Active!

PREVIOUSLY COMPLETED MATCHING DONATION OPPORTUNITIES
Opportunity 2:
Status: Completed!
When: Announced on May 26, completed on June 10.
Deadline: June 15
What: Two anonymous donors have offered donations that can be matched totaling almost 4 million won (about $3,500). That means that every donation really matters because it helps us chip away at that 4 million won total!

* Opportunity 1
Status: Completed!
When: Announced on May 2, completed on May 6.
What: TNKR co-founder Casey Lartigue matched the first 1 million won (about $900).

Half of these Matching donation opportunities will be used to help TNKR with its international expansion and the other half will be used for TNKR's operations. As of June 1, TNKR has no paid staff, that means that all donations will support operations.

You can also donate through the TNKR bank account:

TNKR began as a humble gathering in March 2013 when we matched a handful of North Korean refugees with volunteer tutors in Seoul. Since then, more than 280 refugees have studied with more than 580 volunteer tutors and coaches.

English is important to helping refugees access opportunities in South Korea. According to one study, 32 percent of refugees drop out of school because of problems with English (that's even higher than 28 percent who dropped out to earn money). Of refugees who said they considered dropping out, another 33 percent cited English as a reason. English is needed for employment tests in South Korea, so many refugees get eliminated almost immediately.

After our recent trip to the UK, we learned that refugees there are also struggling with English. We hope that we can provide support for refugees there.
