Korea Klubben is a Danish NGO/non-profit association established by Korean adoptees in 1990, dedicated to strengthening and creating community among Korean adoptees, facilitating access to post-adoption resources, and providing educational and relevant workshops for its members.
We provide a social forum for adult adoptees sharing cultural and adoptee experiences. We promote Post Adoption Services such as counselling to adoptees and adoptive families, and education to professionals. We are dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of issues related to international adoption from Korea.
Korea Klubben is one of the founding associations of IKAA, International Korean Adoptee Associations, an international network of associations for Korean adoptees, which bridges cultures and nationalities and facilitate personal & social networking among the global Korean adoptee community, in addition to presenting a unified voice for Korean adoptees in relation to international adoption politics.
