Capacity-Building of Cooperatives
Supporting the needs of rural cooperatives.
We provide high-quality extension services along the entire horticultural value chain, such as training in management and business development, as well as organic farming technology.
Providing assistance for children from vulnerable families.
We have set up a daycare center in the “yurt” area, where children can have access to pre-primary education, nutritious food, and medical care in a safe and welcoming environment.
Helping victims of emergency disasters after they occur.
Mongolia often faces droughts, heavy rains, floods, hails, heavy snow, and dust storms. Also, we must cope with the “dzuds” on the country — severe winter conditions that hinder pastoral work. We help the poor recover from these disasters and rebuild their livelihoods in ways that are more resilient to climate changes. You can learn more about our emergency response challenges and efforts at this featured story on National Geographic.
Food Security & Agriculture
Giving small farming communities access to important resources.
We help some communities by providing them with the proper technological tools and knowledge required to operate their agricultural operations. This way, food production can meet their household nutritional needs, integrate into common markets, and resist more effectively during times of environmental or economic hardship.
Gender & Advocacy
Taking a stand for women’s empowerment.
Not only do we advocate against sexual violence in any form, but we also provide “practical” assistance to victims of domestic abuse and violence. Our iniciatives within this program help women with acquiring livelihood skills such as sewing and cultivating vegetables. In addition to that, each of our other programs is made to be gender-conscious.
Research & Development
Developing new tomorrows for Mongolian farmers.
Our development of passive solar greenhouses (PSGH), trench greenhouses (TGH) and bioclimatic cellars, as well as water management and soil-conservation packages, has helped rural farmers extend their agricultural activities. As a whole, we have been able to achieve up to nine months of farming productivity increases, compared to only three months when deploying traditional greenhouses.
Facilitating the economic reintegration of Mongolian workers.
Sometimes people have difficulty in finding economic opportunities in Mongolia, particularly when returning home after a period living abroad (such as in Europe). Thus, we seek to enable their successful reintegration in the economy, by making sure they obtain a sustainable and productive work within the country.
By 2020, we expect to have had…
