THE STORY:

PSCORE is a non-profit, non-religious, non-partisan NGO which strives for mutual understanding and harmony between the two Koreas. It aims to provide a platform to discuss topics such as democratization, human rights and social issues.

Since its establishment in 2006, PSCORE has been operating an education program whereby North Korean defectors are matched with an English language volunteer whom they meet on regular basis in order to improve language skills and become exposed to different cultures. This program has supported over 600 North Korean defectors since its creation with the help of roughly 2,000 volunteers. PSCORE is the only North Korean human rights organisation that has received Consultative Status by the UN ECOSOC (Economic and Social Council).

Unfortunately, the US State Department will no longer provide financial support to PSCORE after April, due to the government sequestration. This has been our main source of funding and has therefore catastrophic consequences to our organisation. Without the financial support we will be unable to continue our projects and activities.

The most unfortunate thing of all is that we are now in danger of losing our workplace as we cannot afford the rental fee. If the office disappears, the education program for North Korean defectors would take a severe hit. The North Korean defectors are guaranteed to suffer from the disadvantageous situation. Furthermore, a great many volunteers would also lose valuable opportunities to interact and help the North Korean defectors.

We are in the process of seeking South Korean government financial support for these projects but in the meantime we need funding to bridge the transition period. We welcome all contributions regardless of the size of the donation. Thank you for your interest and support!
