Description

Local Children's Centers in South Korea provide shelter for children after regular school hours as well as educational and cultural opportunities. Most of the children in rural areas have fewer opportunities for meeting foreigners and getting high quality English education compared to kids in urban areas. And although international marriages are quite common in rural areas, local residents still lack the understanding of multiculturalism. So the children are facing discrimination in school, cultural and language difficulties.

This project will play an important role in bringing a taste of international culture to the local children. The volunteers can give these children a chance to interact with foreigners and understand other cultures. And English can be the tool for understanding Korean children and interacting with them. The local children's center welcomes you to organize your own class with your talents and ideas.


Uiryeong is a small town famous for its beautiful scenery and for the delicious traditional Korean rice cakes called "Bangae-deok". Since the government usually develops infrastructure depending on the population of the region, many people in this area are isolated from the benefits. Although it’s a good place to live, since there are not enough job positions, parents work in a nearby city and come back late. The project is in support of a children’s center providing care, educational and entertainment programs for 10 to 30 children and youth in the community, 8 to 16 years old.


Project dates: September 12 - December 7, 2018
