Since our last update to you, we discovered that many of the preschool-aged children at orphanages in Korea are being delayed for entry into preschool and kindergarten because of new budget restrictions set by the local government offices. KKOOM's focus has been on providing access to education for kids at orphanages in Korea, and we believe that education must start with the youngest of the children. Therefore, we are happy to let you know that Donghyuk, age 3, is now attending preschool on a daily basis thanks to your donations. There, he is learning the ABCs and other basics that will help ensure that his educational career gets off to a solid start at such a young age. In January, KKOOM will also provide financial support for Gaeun, now age 2, to also attend preschool. Gaeun is exceptionally bright for her age and already knows about half of the English alphabet, thanks to the efforts of KKOOM volunteers who play with and teach her English through songs and other media on a regular basis. We are grateful for your ongoing support and invite you to visit our website for more information about KKOOM. Thank you!
