NKSC made site visits to another group of schools in August and September. As always, NKSC’s team of young and dedicated North Korean defector speakers did their best to spread awareness about North Korea’s realities in a fun and interactive way.

One student had this to say after participating in a lecture:

At first I was against unification. Why would South Korea who lives far better off have to help North Korea?
I thought South Korea would be jeopardized if that happened. After listening to this lecture I feel I have changed my mind. North Koreans are the same people as us. Maybe it will be hard in the beginning but if we communicated well we will be able to
understand each other. Let’s not be afraid of helping North Koreans and see that we are all the same people.
