Korean Kids and Orphanage Outreach Mission

We are organized to improve and enrich the lives of children living in orphanages and group homes in South Korea; to support these youth after they leave the institutions and start their own lives by providing post-high-school-graduation education, support services, and resources; to aid the institutions and staff that devote their resources to the upbringing of these youth and spread awareness and build compassion for these children.

Thank you for your support!

Samsungwon, the orphanage in Gumi, South Korea, recently had its three-year government review, and I'm happy to report that they successfully "passed." 

However, Samsungwon is still greatly in need of new furniture for its older building, where the girls live. There are three girls houses, each home to 12 girls, ages 2 to 20. As you can imagine, things are quite cramped, and they would benefit from new bookshelves, dressers, and desk chairs. Your donations to this project will go to support these needs.

For more on the work KKOOM is doing at Samsungwon and at orphanages throughout South Korea, check out our blog. http://kkoom.org/category/blog/

Thank you for your continued support via GlobalGiving!

2013 College Scholarship Recipients

In March 2013, five young adults who grew up at Samsungwon, the orphanage/children's home in Gumi, South Korea went to college. We are pleased to inform you that your generosity allowed KKOOM to provide each of them with a 500,000 won (~$500 USD) scholarship to help pay for their living expenses while they go to school. Upon successful completion of their spring semester and continued enrollment in the fall semester, KKOOM will provide them each with an additional 500,000 won in August. These young adults are majoring in subjects ranging from music peformance to nursing to technology. All of them live in dormitories during the school year and return to visit Samsungwon on their school breaks and holidays.

Thank you for your continued support of this important KKOOM initiative. As always, we invite your direct contact and feedback at any time. I can be reached at ajachym@kkoom.org or 269-340-0430. You can also follow us on Twitter or find us on Facebook.

Thank you!

More Furniture is Needed

This summer, Samsungwon, the orphanage in Gumi, South Korea, will complete a renovation of its original building to add modern fire sprinklers and other fire saftey equiment. While doing so, Samsungwon would also like to update the furniture in the three girls' houses located in the original building.

The girls need new beds, desks, bookshelves, and clothing organizers. Some of the existing furniture is falling apart, and storage for the girls' individual belongings is insufficient. Your donations to this project will help fund these needs and create a better, brighter space for the girls in the original building.

Thank you for your generous support!
