at the grassroots level.

Information

how and where to find information.

Mentoring 

North Korean defectors lack a lot of support

in various areas of life in the event of a problem arrising.

population in South Korea. 

Additionally, the school drop-out rate among defected students are 2 to 5 times higher than the

defectors as subjects, but there is a lack of media outlets for North Korean defectors to voice
