North Star NK, Inc.
Our mission is to equip and enable women defectors from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with the skills and way of thinking that are necessary to survive, function, and thrive in the Republic of Korea. Seventy-one percent of all defectors from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are women and coming from a patriarchal dictatorial society in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to a society like the Republic of Korea, a society that is empowering women, embracing gender equality, and largely allows people to write and choose their own destiny is free liberating for these defectors but it can also present many harrowing daunting challenges for these defectors. Many of these defectors are free and they are great to be free however with freedom comes lots of challenges and responsibilities.
This organization is dedicated to helping these women meet the challenges and responsibilities to function well in the Republic of Korea. These women have Korean blood just like us in the Republic of Korea, while we are lucky and fortunate to be born free, can choose our own leaders, and write our own destiny, our sisters from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are born under the leadership of a totalitarian dictator we are here to help them break the chains of oppression and to help them enjoy the taste of freedom that we have been blessed to enjoy.
