When we tell people about the work we do at Choson Exchange, there's often surprise, then curiosity, then excitement. Entrepreneurship! In North Korea! What a crazy adventure!
But this isn't about thrill. Ultimately, the work we do is about people: supporting ambitious North Koreans who care about their families, follow their dreams, and try to be successful in an extremely difficult environment. The workshops we offer aim to help those who see opportunities and work hard to make the most of them.
CE volunteers have now trained more than 1,000 North Koreans — an amazing impact that would not have been possible without the participation and generous donations from experienced professionals like you.
Next year, we hope to reach even more Koreans, share more knowledge, spark more ambition, and inspire more entrepreneurs to support positive change in the DPRK. If you see value in what we do, please consider donating to Choson Exchange. Donate 100 USD or more before the end of this year and we'll send you a post card from Pyongyang when we are back in the DPRK next time (make sure to include your mailing address in the notes when making your donation). Donating 500 USD will contribute to a business workshop in the DPRK, while 1,500 USD is the cost of a flight for a North Korean to join one of our study programs in Singapore.
Whatever you can contribute, we promise to put it to exceptional use.
Thank you for your support.
