Mongolia is a country of young people, they form a third of the population. The local economic situation is gradually improving; however, the state has not been able to provide sufficient support for vulnerable groups of people. Mongolia is also dealing with pollutionand insufficient environmental protection.

Caritas Czech Republic has been operating in the Mongolia since 2006, and we opened our country office there in 2007. Our focus is on environmental protection, especially efficient waste management, and the active support of young people. However, we have also provided humanitarian aid to shepherds affected by harsh winter, or aid in the fields of education, social and and health services.

In Mongolia, our long-term focus is on projects coming from the fields of environmental protection, efficient waste management, and recycling support. Waste treatment is one of the fundamental problems that Mongolia is currently dealing with, especially in the plastic waste area. In 2020, we successfully carried out a project that focused on construction waste recycling and its use. We are currently working on support for the treatment of plastic waste that has literally flooded Mongolia. Illegal plastic waste disposal is present not only in households but also in companies.

Mongolsko 1Support of Youth and Civil Society

Caritas Czech Republic, together with partner organizations, promotes the development of Mongolian youth and civil society. Through the project “All for YOUth, YOUth for all” we not only support the development of volunteerism among young people, but we also help them with personal growth and advise them on how to plan and build their careers. In 2020, we also participated in a media campaign to support the participation of young voters in parliamentary elections.

We immediately sent humanitarian aid to the country, and we also supported refugees from Ukraine in Moldova and in the Czech Republic. Our help did not stop there. We supported farmers in Zambia to withstand climate change, helped people in Iraq rebuild their livelihoods, and much more. Take a look at our biggest achievements of 2022.
