Helping the North Korean refugees to transition into the South Korean society.

Hanawon Ministry
Hanawon is a government-run facility designed to help North Korean refugees to transitioning into South Korean society. Due to GEM’s longstanding relationship with Hanawon, we are allowed to enter as English instructors. While our main role is to be teachers, we use the classroom as an environment for relationships to develop naturally.

Hanawon Schedule
*Prayer meeting: 6pm-7pm every fourth Tues on the 7th floor of MD Plaza
*Serve on Tuesdays: 7-8pm, meet at MD Plaza 1st floor at 5:30pm to drive to center – come back around 9:15pm
