Playlists of each teacher
Playlists of each teacher

The first quarter of this year, the date of starting school (elementary, middle, and high school) was indefinitely postponed in Korea.

Almost every school has afterschool classes, and there are more than one hundred thousand of teachers for these classes. They are temporary employee of each school, so their livelihoods were at risk as the schools had no specific plan to begin the afterschool classes again.

So we, A-PAD Korea, opened a You-tube channel and paid 10 afterschool teachers for uploading their teaching videos for 3 months, from April to July.

Thanks to this project, teacher’s financial burden was decreased, and students also could have diverse classes because these 10 teachers have very different kind of classes, although they could not take these classes in person.

Furthermore, the teachers could get portfolio for themselves suing these videos, so this channel is also used to promote their own classes after all.

 

Of course the quality and content of each video could not be same, so they have different number of views, Bang Bang School has almost 300 subscribers and most popular video of this channel has 3300 views so far.

2) Improved problems

- Providing meal boxes to 2846 children in local children’s center who were unable to eat properly because of COVID-19

- Improving the local economy for asking local restaurants which closed the door because of COVID-19 to make meal boxes

 

3) Activities

COVID-19 struck Korea. The 5,677 confirmed patients out of 6,088 total patients were in Daegu and the North Gyeongsang

district, as of 06 Mar. This situation made this local economy stop totally, so that many children in Daegu children’s center could

be only given a meal in a day. This also caused a huge economic loss to the people who ran the restaurants. A-PAD Korea

improved the local economy by asking local restaurants to make meal boxes, through self-fundraising, and progressed the

immediate support project to provide warm meals to the children who were unable to eat properly in local chinldren’s center.

It was not so easy to handle all this situations only through the self-fundraising. However, many people got to know about the

difficulties that the people in Daegu area should get through, by using the platform 'GlobalGiving’, so that we could meet

our target amount within a week. With this, A-PAD Korea could ask local restaurants to make meal boxes to improve the local

economy and provide these meal boxes to Daegu Children’s center quickly. Without considering the amount of the money, We

could help the people who had not given the proper support in Daegu area. For COVID-19, ‘GlobalGiving’, Please support

for Daegu! We want to appreciatiate to GlobalGiving donaters. Because of your donation and support, we could help children’s

center and the local restaurants. Thank you very much :)

  On March 9, A-PAD Korea arrived at Daegu, the most confirmed city in Korea.

 We planned a project suitable for the size of the funding and proceeded quickly. COVID-19 virus doesn't wait for us. We should run faster than COVID-19.

  A project was planned to deliver a proper meal of lunch boxes to 200 children at 13 local children's center in Suseong-gu, Daegu.

 Almost local restaurants were closed because of COVID-19. We selected a few local restaurants near children's center to boost the local economy.

 Thanks to the support, warm lunch boxes were delivered to the Daugu children's center.

 Usually, children at the local children's center ate lunch at school and dinner at the children's center. Due to COVID-19, the beginning of school has been delayed and meal resolution has become difficult. Government provide 5,000 KRW(5$) coupon to children everyday. The restaurant was alomost closed. There were only a few items to eat(kimbap, ramen, etc). 5$ is not enough to have a proper meal.

 Helping Daegu children project is necessary. Currently, only 200 children we can cover. There are more than 5,000 children waiting for help.

 Daegu region's economy is disastrous. Families at the children's center have a greater impact. Conversations with family are disappearing. A small lunch box connects the conversation. We all know the power of a warm meal

 Please support us. We are doing our best to help Daegu.

 Thank you.
