What we’re about

Let's help those in need!
Meet new international friends!
Learn other language and culture!

Wherever we are, there are people who are undergoing difficult times of life, and let's be there when they need us.

Let's look up for different types of volunteer opportunities in which we can participate across Korea.

Wouldn't it be nice to meet new people who are like-minded to help those in need together?
