Project Mongolia is a charitable society based at Edinburgh University that was set up in February 2011. Project Mongolia aims to support Mongolian charities working with disadvantaged children from the Ger district in Ulaanbataar and hopes to build lasting links between Edinburgh and Mongolia through cultural exchange volunteer projects.

Project Mongolia is currently affiliated with a Mongolian NGO called Children and Young People’s Protection and Development (CYPPD). Working in partnership with CYPPD, Project Mongolia aims to support and fundraise for community-led social development schemes. The projects the society support and that you can have the chance to help run in Mongolia are primarily educational and social.

Everyone is encouraged to get involved whether you’d like to go abroad and gain volunteering experience or equally be part of a proactive society in Edinburgh. The committee includes people who have previously worked in Mongolia providing excellent support to volunteers. The society has weekly meetings and social events and being part of Project Mongolia is a great way to acquire new skills to put on your CV, gain experience of the charity sector, meet new people and have the summer of a life time teaching ENGLISH, CREATIVITY and FIRST AID to disadvantged people in Mongolia!
