About This Project

Oak Tree Project is a scholarship fund/mentoring program for Korean orphans attending university.

Most of the children who leave the orphanages have no emotional or financial support. Loneliness, depression, suicidal thoughts, vulnerability to bad jobs and bad influences, and alcohol abuse are all huge dangers for these kids. For most of them they have no one to mentor them and help them get on their feet. The few who are able to attend college often give up because they are so worn out from working all the time to provide for their tuition.

Oak Tree Project was formed to not just provide a scholarship for the orphans, but to also serve as a mentoring program that would give the kids the emotional support and direction that they so sorely need. Although their lives have been rooted in the storms of rejection and struggle, we believe through the love and support of the program they will be able to rise up above the storms as mighty oak trees, unshakable in their identity.

Oak Tree Project began with four recipients in 2013 with one of the students graduating that year. Oak Tree Project grew to nine students in 2014 and then seventeen students in 2015. Their goal is to continue to grow and reach more students each year. Here are Oak Tree Project's current students: http://www.oaktreeproject.com/our-family/. All of the students (unless marked "alumni") are still in the program.
