Why Mongolia

Why Mongolia

Mongolia is an awe-inspiring country at a crucial stage of its development. We were founded by Peace Corps Volunteers who wanted to stay connected to Mongolia and knew first-hand the country’s most pressing needs.

Today, we operate educational, community grant, and community outreach programs in Mongolia and the U.S. in support of our goals to promote community development and cultural exchange.
