Teach North Korean Refugees (TNKR), in conjunction with the law firm Shin & Kim, will be holding its second English speech contest in Seoul on August 22 from 2-4 pm.

Seven North Korean refugees will each have up to 10 minutes to address the question, “What freedom means to me.” Participants will prepare and deliver original speeches in English.

Participants are encouraged to prepare with volunteer coaches and tutors in Teach North Korean Refugees. For many of the contestants, it will be their first time to give public speeches in English.

The contest is open to all North Korean refugees who currently or have previously lived in South Korea and who have joined TNKR by June 20. The final contestants will be chosen from a pool of applicants who will be asked to submit a video.

First prize: 1 million won.

Second prize: 500,000 won.

Third prize: 200,000 won.

Honorable mention: 100,000 won each.

The contest will be held at the Shin & Kim office in Seoul.

2015/03/06-07 Mulmangcho/TNKR fundraiser (Refugee Kids Rock!)

“Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a night’s repose.”
–Longfellow

The volunteers of the Mulmangcho School and Teach North Korean Refugee project did it. They raised 2 million won in two nights. I hope they can take a break to recover and rejoice, but I heard that some will be trying to make it to the Mulmangcho School this morning.

I’m the International Adviser to the Mulmangcho School, so I don’t have any real power except to send out threatening messages. But as the co-director of TNKR, I can direct our share of the loot to an internship program we are setting up.

Thanks from co-organizer Injee Lee: “Thanks to the bands (Sons of Tiger, Lions on the Beach, Decader, The Killer Drones, Boss Hagwon, Les Sales, Pentasonic, Colin Phils), the volunteers (Aaron Grommesh, Nina Stearns,Kristen Lefebvre, Rida Hamdani, Ben Haynes, Ren Haynes, Angie Ahn), Rachel Stine who emceed and co-organized, special guests Casey Lartigue and Eunkoo Lee who spoke about the plight of the refugees and what we can do to help, and especially Dwayne Robertson and Kirk Kwon at Thunderhorse Tavern.”

The team of volunteers started arriving a 7 pm on Friday to get set up and I heard that some remained until 3 am both nights.

Holding this kind of fundraiser is something we have been talking about for quite a while, but Injee and Rachel made it happen. They led the effort, but of course it took the team helping them to get it done.
