About

The first international volunteer project in Mongolia was run in 2000 as a result of co-operation between the Japanese organisation NICE and what was then the Mongolian Youth Foundation (MYF). Between 2001 and 2003, 21 volunteer projects were co-organised by NICE and what is now called MCE. Through practical work projects, MCE hopes to encourage public awareness of Mongolia’s social problems and to promote local involvement. There is always a study element on each project so that participants can discuss ideas and contribute to a better local/global future.

Mongolian Volunteer Project

For my first volunteering project overseas I decided to go with Concordia as they seemed like a good organisation. I was not disappointed in choosing them; from the very beginning, before I even started the project they were on hand to answer any of my questions, which were many. They fully supported me before, during and even after I finished the volunteer project.
For the volunteer project itself, I went to Mongolia to help out at the farm at a local orphanage and I have to say it was one of the highlights of my 10 month travel. I made many friends which I still keep in contact with and I felt like I actually did make a difference to the project. The highlight was planning and carrying out an activities day with the kids.
I will definitely volunteer again in the future and when I do I will not hesitate to contact Concordia again.

What would you improve about this program?
In Mongolia sometimes the weather would be bad which would prevent us from working on the farm, it would be great if contingency plans were created so that volunteers could be productive whatever the weather.
