Help Disadvantaged Women Find Jobs In South Korea

Non-profit organization Open Closet rents donated suits to young jobseekers at a minimum cost. All jobseekers can be the beneficiaries of our service, but we prepared a project for unemployed women in Korea this time. In the male-dominated society of South Korea, Korean women must overcome sexual discrimination when they find jobs. Cosmetics company Bobbi Brown Korea collaborated with us for helping them.

Our project has been approved to be on GlobalGiving on March 9. Since the registration, 20 donors have contributed 2,000 dollars. We help young female job seekers rent a suit at a lower cost and we hope to rent a suit for a career break women.

5432 young jobseekers used our sharing service from February 7 to June 9 (up to the present). Among these, 2012 people succeeded in getting jobs. 2,000 dollars we received are yet not used. It will used for female late-jobseekers, who are finding jobs late for their age, by consulting and making programs to restore their confidence.

Thank you very much for your helps and considerations.
