This year, we had the pleasure of providing scholarships to four young adults during their spring and fall semester in college. KKOOM has two scholarship programs for preschool and young adults to continue their education. As Nelson Mandela says “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” With your daily support, we unlock educational opportunities for young adults to be successful in society. The students we have supported in 2017 are Minyeal, Yeonhwa, Yonghoon, and Mingyu.
To support our college students, KKOOM provides a semester stipend of 500,000 KRW, approximately $460. These funds help provide a variety of things for these orphan children that grew up at Samsungwon Orphanage. It helps cover textbook costs, transportation fees to/from the university, lodging, or tuition itself.
While in Korea, our Chief Administrator had the chance to meet a few of the college recipients. She recognized YongHoon (pictured to the left) and Minyeal (picture to the light) immediately after reading through their applications and writing more about their college experiences through KKOOM’s blog posts. Minyeal hopes to travel abroad after graduation for a short period of time, which allows him to be one step closer to becoming an international world-praise minister. He mentioned the expensive costs of going abroad including airfare and lodging costs.
Personally, our Chief Administrator is exploring ways to make this dream a reality for his desire to sing abroad. Minyeal will graduate from school towards the end of August/September 2018. We hope in the future we can share the good news of Minyeal’s trip abroad!
