TNKR refugees do great things. As of 2017, TNKR refugee members have delivered more than 50 public speeches in Korea, the USA, the United Kingdom, India, Nepal, and China.

TNKR(Teach North Korean Refugees English) was one of the turning points of my life outside of darkness. The volunteer teachers showed me a hope for humanity through their love and care for people like myself who had nothing to offer. I cannot name them all, but every one of them showed me that the humanity’s hope was never lost when we stand together, help each other and fight for each other.

“North Korean people all over the world need more great organizations like TNKR to support their adjustment to life in other countries with tutoring, coaching, and networking opportunities.”
