Teach North Korean Refugees
Republic of Korea
Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR) is a non-profit that works in South Korea, teaching North Korean refugees, with a primary focus on English. They teach basic English and business English, depending on the interest of the student. All of the tutors are volunteers, and most classes are taught one-on-one. Their goal is to help refugees find the resources they need to improve academically and professionally.
Mission Statement: Teach North Korean Refugees empowers North Korean refugees to find their own voice and path through education, advocacy, and support.
Board Discretionary Grant. The Skees Family Foundation began working with TNKR in 2015. We wanted to opportunity to work in this region, and we think that helping refugees find a place in society through education and job preparation is an admirable and sustainable approach.
