Hanawon Ministry

Hanawon Ministry
Hanawon is a high security government facility designed to help female North Korean refugees to transition into South Korean society smoothly. They stay in Hanawon for about 3 months and receive necessary education and counseling for settling down.

We have a longstanding relationship with Hanawon of over 13 years which allows us to enter the building as volunteer English instructors. While our main role is teaching, we also see the classroom as an excellent environment to build rapport with the ladies preparing to launch their new life.

Prayer meeting: Every 4th Tuesdays, 6:00 – 7:00pm, MD Plaza 7th fl.
Serving on Tuesdays: Meet at MD Plaza 1st fl. at 5:30pm to drive to Hanawon. Class is for 1 hour. Return to GEM around 9:30pm
