Objectives

To promote human rights (as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent United Nations conventions and declarations) in North Korea by all or any of the following means:

  • monitoring abuses of human rights;  
  • educating the public about human rights;
  • raising awareness of human rights issues; and
  • promoting public support for human rights.

To advance the education and training of those granted refugee status and their dependants in need thereof so as to advance them in life and assist them to adapt within a new community.

Activities

Storytelling: We aim to empower North Koreans and inform the public about North Korean human rights by sharing North Koreans stories with the world through videos, interviews, written accounts, public events, and engaging the media.

Support: We arrange group classes and for volunteers to teach English to refugees 1-on-1. We also hold monthly social events to allow refugees to engage with English-speaking people.
