Chungbuk Multicultural Family Support Center's vision is to provide a school for kids, regardless of culture or background, and help them on their feet and lead them on the road to success. By extending a helping hand to those in desperate need by giving them new hope and a foundation for their lives, we plan on building a new school to provide troubled mid-entry immigrant children who cannot attend public schools with the support and education they need to establish a secure life in Korea.
Currently around 20,000 undocumented children below the age of 18 live in Korea and most are off the grid and denied basic children's rights to education, health care and protection from violence. And the few that attend school often come out because they're bullied and aren't able to keep up with the other students. Despite more and more immigrants flowing in every year, with no government funding, there is nowhere for these kids to go to, leaving many uneducated and doing hard labor.
Chungbuk Multicultural Family Support Center will provide an educational facility for migrant children and teenagers to go to help them develop the knowledge, skills, and the vision they need to blossom in their new surroundings and succeed in the real world and beyond.
This will put these children on the right path to achieving success whatever direction they decide to go, allowing them the choice and freedom to follow their dreams while being able to fit into their new society. This will also allow them to rise out of poverty, which will enable them to take care of their families' well being and lastly, hopefully encourage the Korean society to be more accepting of foreigners.
