About Program

We will provide you with various placements and opportunity to challenge your life, gain new experiences and knowledge from completely different country, culture, society, people, religion - Mongolia! Transitional changes from a Communist state to a free market economy have left the most vulnerable members of society (particularly children who represent 46% of the population) increasingly isolated. Rising unemployment has caused increasing economic pressure on the family, resulting in poverty, alcoholism and domestic violence. Increasing numbers of children, especially girls under the age of 18 are choosing or being forced to live on the streets supporting themselves through begging and prostitution.

This program is no longer offered. View more programs from Shinesaran Development Fund.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

It is real good organization in mongolia

New Choice enriches the lives of the Mongolia community by providing a number of vital programs that may be fulfilled by anyone who has a passion to help.The first program focuses in providing the vulnerable children of Mongolia with an education system that gives them liberation from a live immersed in poverty and exploitation. While they give particular emphasis on teaching the children about health matters, this program is all about broadening the perspective of children who come from poor communities. The second service that New Choice provides is health care. The current doctor to patient ratio in Mongolia is about 1 to 750. New Choice seeks to address this problem by placing doctors, nurses, and medical schools students in hospitals and medial centers through out the country. They are looking more particularly for Internists, Urologists, Surgeons, Oncologists, Opthamologists, Nurses and Dentists. Due to the estimated 780,000 people in Mongolia who are currently living in extremely poor conditions, the third project of New Choice focuses on improving homes and building new ones. Any volunteer can participate in this. The most successful and popular of the projects is the Summer Camp that New Choice puts on. The goal of this is to teach children skills and abilities that they will be able to use later in life in a more relaxed environment. Not only does New Choice accomplish all of these projects through out the year but they are constantly building new projects, like Day Care Centres and a Mobile Clinic Service where their goal is to take "hospital to home".
