This study explores features of the government-funded educational development cooperation projects run by the Republic of Korea (hereafter Korea)’s non-governmental organizations (NGOs). We analyzed national and international ODA statistics, along with data from NGO worker interviews. The results show that these projects use a children-centered integrated community development approach and tend to be selected to produce short-term, tangible results. They emphasized the field much more than international agendas or national policies, perceiving a gap between these during implementation. Based on this finding, we suggest that global and local development activities could interact and influence each other, creating a balance.
