Did you know that The Justice Desk was inspired by BTS? They are a South Korean boy band who, through their music, have inspired countless people to love themselves, love others and make a difference. After hearing RM of BTS speak at The United Nations, we launched “The Mbokodo Club” project, that supports hundreds of girl survivors of rape and Gender-Based Violence.

 

BTS ARMY from across South Africa surrounded the project with love, volunteering to mentor and support the girls in the project.

TJD has had a strong connection to South Korea through many of its many volunteers, interns, support networks, and project participants - many of whom have been inspired by Korean music and culture, showing the incredible impact of Korea’s soft power across the globe.

We have formed strong ties with The Korean Embassy and his Excellency Ambassador Chull-Joo Park here in South Africa and our goal is to truly amplify the continent of Africa and the potential of Korea-African partnerships. The Justice Desk and the Korean Embassy have and will continue to work together, strengthening the love and Ubuntu connection between South Africa and South Korea!
