excited to inform you that Social Welfare
Society (SWS) in Korea will be sponsoring
its 9th Welcome Home.
This is a program they have provided since
2008 for adult adoptees from Korea so they
can visit and explore their
homeland. This year the program
will begin on August 20th and end
on August 26th.
idea of the program is to match an adoptee
with a Korean volunteer and experience the
entire program together as a team.
Through these connections it is hoped that
adoptees will explore Korea in a friendlier
way, feel comfortable and invited in the
land of their birth.
cost of Welcome Home 2017 is provided
by Social Welfare Society and this also
includes accommodations for one day before
and one day after the program.
Airfare is not included. As the
opening ceremony is scheduled in the
afternoon of August 20th, all
participants are expected to arrive in Korea
by the morning of the 20th.
As for the departure, the closing ceremony
is scheduled in the evening of August 26th,
which means all departures should be planned
for August 27th or later.
adult adoptees between the ages of 20 and 50
are welcome to apply for the program.
Should there be an overflow of applicants,
those that have not visited Korea before
will be given priority. The deadline for
application is July 21st.
Attached you will find
the program brochure which outlines
the daily itinerary. In addition you
will find the application form which
can be sent as an attachment via email to

Welcome Home, and we hope you will, please
