In fact, I am really ignorant of the strategy about fundraising. I would just like to learn about the systematic way of looking at strategic fundraising in general.
As a student, I am not totally committed to one specific action or civic activity. However, one of the positions that I consider the most important is joint-coordinator in Peace Pilgrim Program (PPP) of Border Peace School (BPS) in Korea. BPS is an alternative peace education institution situated near the border area that lies between the South and the North Korea. BPS and I are planning to launch PPP, which could utilize the border area and open up its potential as a ground for peace education.
So far, I have applied for three projects that, if chosen as a winner, could provide seed money to work on an initiative project. I failed to be the final winner for two out of three. And I would also like to draw money from individual financial supporters.

Jennifer Magee, a student organization coordinator in my school--Swarthmore College--introduced me to this event.
Hi my name is Soul Han. I am a Korean student in Swarthmore College. I am working on various projects related to drawing people to local civic engagement, imbuing the value of peace into Koreans, and helping North Korean defectors.
