Exchange & Support Program

  • The power of exchange and coexistence helps overseas Korean communities to safely settle and grow.

The OKF offers support to various exchange programs managed by overseas Korean organizations to help overseas Koreans to stably settle in their respective country of residence and help Korean communities expand their rights and interests to gain political influence.
We primarily support projects and activities that promote the rights, interests and political influence of overseas Koreans in their country of residence, including voter registration, facilitating exchanges between mainstream and minor circles, stable settlement for the underprivileged, legal support for restoring nationality, and safety maintenance for overseas Korean communities.
