Mongolia is a country of young people, they make up more than a third of the local population. Unfortunately, they often face unemployment. Caritas Czech Republic, therefore, helps young Mongolians with their personal development and advises them on how to plan and build a career. That is why we supported B. Baldangombo and five other entrepreneurs who give young Mongolians a chance to earn living.
A shared workshop is a chance for young graduates
Baldangombo earned a living making furniture while he was at university. He started a shared workshop together with his friend back then to save some money on rent. In 2021, they came up with the idea of setting up a larger space where 9 people can work.
This will give young people in the Khentii province of Mongolia the opportunity to set up their own businesses and save the running costs. "There are many young talented people here, but they lack the resources and experience to get started," explains B. Baldangombo, who not only offers the young Mongolians a place to work, but also plans to share his own experience as a furniture maker. "Once they gain enough experience and customers, they will be able to find their own premises and we will be able to take on another graduate to join us in our shared workshop," he says, describing the sustainability of his business.
Statistically, young Mongolians make up more than 50 per cent of unemployed people. That is why Caritas Czech Republic supports entrepreneurs who give young people a chance to develop their careers. In addition to B. Baldangombo, we have supported five other entrepreneurs through the European Union who give young people a chance to start a career.
