Volunteer in Mongolia is the best way to help one of the most disadvantaged and neglected children community in the world. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Families
Groups
50+

To help improving general knowledge of the kids in English as the main medium of instruction. Children in schools used to have an option only to study Russian only as a second language. Since the Mongolian Revolution of 1990, the government is more open and students are given a chance to study other languages such as English in schools. The quality of English language teaching, however, needs improvement. 

You play an important role in the contribution for the children in Mongolia as a volunteer whether during your gap year, career break or during a volunteer vacation. The impact you have on the kids will be obvious, but you will also be part of a much larger network of international volunteers which is making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider community.

From time to time, you will help out with a number of things from events or activities organising for the children, teaching extra-curricular classes such as music, sports or languages, to helping with cooking, maintenance, administration and or even fundraising.

Teaching English, one of the activities in this program is challenging, but it is also very rewarding. As as volunteer you may choose to teach two to four hours a day for five days a week. If you have other skills, like knowledge of drawing, you can teach these along with English as the main medium of instruction. This program encourages you to come with innovations and creative ideas you think will bring to the highest level of benefit to the children, therefore there is no fix-curriculum. 

There is a variety of resources may be useful, for example a library, musical instruments, sewing machines, classroom, even outdoor activities as there is a basket ball court and vast land in the centre premises which you can make use of them for any lesson you would like to teach.
