Do you want to help North Koreans?

TIE is a new organization aimed at doing just that.
TIE (Teachers for Integration through English) is a non-profit organization founded by teachers whose principle goal is to reach out to North Korean refugees residing in the Seoul area. Our all-volunteer team of professionals has come together in hopes of further integrating North Koreans into South Korean society by providing free English instruction.
If you have some free time and want to help out, take a look.

I think they have a fine idea — I've long encouraged people to volunteer teaching North Korean refugees — but they need to dot their i's and cross their t's. It's integration (not intergration) and principal goal, not principle goal.

That's not really that important, but it would be good to clean up their site (though they admit that the real site is under construction).

When they get that up, I would like to write a post about what they're doing.

They're shooting for a mid-March website unveiling.

There is also another organization that has a similar program: PSCORE Maybe they could combine their efforts

Ah I thought we could help by using the old dmz tunnels as an underground railroad trail.
