“Power of Hope” Project: Global Entrepreneurship Education for North Korean Refugee Students 

In 2016, EDR has initiated a human security project, The Power of Hope. The project aims to create role models and community leaders for the North Korean refugee community through business development education and social entrepreneurship to enhance self-confidence and global/social awareness. Since 2016, 17 college students have been selected out of the North Korean refugee community in South Korea and have completed the month-long training in the EDR campus in Boston.
