After our last training program, we have a good sense for what we can contribute, what is wanted, and a good working model for how to deliver in (both in terms of trainers and in the operational context of North Korea). Hence, our main goal now is to fund raise to make Choson Exchange more sustainable. While we can continue operating on everyone's own dime as we face rather low costs in North Korea, our main challenge is the need for at least one or two permanent staff who can maintain the channels of communication and ensure that logistics can be handled adequately. These are time-consuming and thankless tasks...but necessary.
If you have any leads on possible fund-raising idea, do contact us at CETeam@chosonexchange.org.
