Mongolia

Working with Children in Mongolia

While Mongolia is still known for its nomadic herding, its population has become increasingly urban as families seek job opportunities and better education for their children. Data show that two in five vulnerable people in Mongolia are children under the age of 15.

World Vision Mongolia works to protect children from violence and exploitation. We work with the poorest households in both rural and urban areas to diversify incomes, improve food security, educate children and prepare for frequent severely cold winters known as dzuds. Wherever possible, we work closely with the Mongolian government, community organizations and faith-based groups.
