Recently, the types of children in North Korean migrant families have become increasingly diverse. We have identified the need for greater support in raising North Korean migrant children.
North Korean migrant youth suffer social prejudice and potential discrimination-we need to improve the awareness of North Korean migrants in the region.
North Korean migrant youth experience difficulties due to cultural and linguistic differences. Children from other third countries struggle the most in learning the formal curriculum here due to language difficulties.
For us to provide education with open communication and empathy, a key word of ours, support and policies limited to one field are insufficient. In successfully assisting with education, it is critical to establish a common vision of “school, home, support organizations, and local community” and an integrated and systematic education support system.
We provide educational services tailored to the situation and needs of the North Korean migrant youth, identify where existing support services are limited, conduct case studies to process relevant data, coordinate and focus our services, and actively calibrate our services by examining the actual situation of North Korean migrant youth in their local communities. We strive to build a system of social integration in North Korean migrant youth education through a network of schools and local organizations.
