Thanks to the generous support of donors like you and GlobalGiving.org, KKOOM is just $2,144 away from fully funding its International Education Program (IEP), which aims to deliver quality English education to kids in Korean orphanages and also inspire a new generation of globally connected youth, regardless of their socioeconomic status. KKOOM's all-volunteer Curriculum Development Team (CDT) has been working hard to put together, from scratch, a "KKOOM English Curriculum," which will be used for one-on-one online, real-time tutoring with qualified tutors in the U.S. and kids at orphanages in the U.S. You can read more about the CDT n our previous GlobalGiving project update from the summer as well as our recent newsletter, which is linked below.
The $2,144 we have yet to raise for the IEP will be used to purchase necessary technology components, such as laptops or netbooks for the orphanage(s) and wireless routers. Thus, in order to launch this project on-schedule in early 2011, we need your help to push us to the finish line. Can you pitch in another $10 or tell your friends about KKOOM's IEP? Or what about those great holiday gift cards that GlobalGiving.org is selling? Regardless of what you can do, the all-volunteer KKOOM family is fortunate to have your support, and from all of us, thank you and happy holidays!
In addition to the IEP, KKOOM is working on a number of other exciting initiatives, which are described more fully in our newsletter and on our website, both linked below. The highlights include upcoming projects and parties at 5 orphanages in South Korea in December, as well as growing involvement and support from youth throughout the United States. Thank you to all for your continued interest, encouragement, and gifts!
As always, please feel free to contact me directly with questions or comments.
