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.

Off to college...

Thanks to your support, our friend, Jin Dong is currently taking his midterm exams at Busan National University, where he's a freshman majoring in business management. Upon arrival at university this March, Jin Dong discovered that amongst his classmates with the same declared major, he had achieved the second highest overall score on the college admission test. In his free time, he has been tutoring high school students in Busan who are preparing for the same admission test.

Jin Dong sends his warm regards to all of his supporters and thanks all of you for your encouragement and financial generosity to KKOOM!

Update from Emmanuel Children's Home

This week, KKOOM is hosting the second volunteer stay program at Emmanuel Children's Home, an orphanage in Gimcheon, South Korea. We hosted the first stay program here last August.

The reality of children living in orphanages is that many of them will never get to experience international travel firsthand. However, we believe that these children deserve opportunities to gain a global perspective and spur their interest in developing their own educational passions.

To that end, we have assembled a great team of volunteers to spend the week living with the 110 kids here at Emmanuel. These volunteers are teaching the kids English, encouraging them to think critically, and helping them to articulate their personal dreams and goals. The theme of this week is "dream," which is what "kkoom" means in Korean.

Your gifts and investment in KKOOM's International Education initiative via GlobalGiving are helping to make this week possible. You can read updates from the stay program at Emmanuel on our volunteer blog here: http://www.kkoom.org/category/blog

Thank you for your support!
