(Photo Gallery) Empathy SEEDS Daegu

On October 28, Consul David J. Jea visited Empathy Guesthouse to learn about Empathy SEEDS’ (Social Enterprise for Exchange, Development, and Sustainability) plans for the future. Empathy SEEDS promotes local tourism and international exchange as way to foster understanding and provide livelihoods for the disabled and disadvantaged. Established in June 2013, the organization has been contributing to social well-being by channeling proceeds from their businesses to North Korean defectors and other groups. It has played a notable role in facilitating U.S.-ROK exchanges on language learning and best practices for social work and refugee resettlement.
