Our healthcare education initiative is in its infancy and requires the skills of both established medical and healthcare professionals and those interested in teaching basic first aid and hygiene. This need for having you on either end of the medical spectrum arises due to the great extremes in hygiene and health practices. Apart from needing qualified professionals in order to conduct health camps and dental checkups, we also need participants who can educate people in the areas of basic first aid and personal hygiene such as washing hands, brushing teeth and general cleanliness. This works towards the prevention of many avoidable health problems and easily communicable diseases.

In comparison to the teaching project, our medical initiative is in its infancy, and in view of this both established medical care professionals and those just with an interest in teaching simple hygiene are of immense value to us. Many important things, by which we mean important for their immediate and future health, are quite often not common practice with the children you will meet. Here we are talking about the importance of simple hygiene, washing hands, brushing teeth and basically general cleanliness overall, clothes as well.

Participants with an interest in educating simple hygiene techniques are welcome to join the newly established healthcare education project. Medical professionals who can offer guidance on the project’s development would be immensely valuable, however, it is not imperative that participants need to have a medical background to join us. We also run healthcare campaigns in local schools around Ulaanbaatar, actively teaching the importance of basic hygiene – emphasizing brushing teeth correctly, washing hands and general body cleanliness. Many of our daily routines that we carry out without thinking are not a common practice with the children you will meet, but starting simple education early can go a long way for immediate and future healthcare. For participants with a medical background, checkup clinics can be held for local children and adults.

Aims & Objectives

The aim of this project is to help provide basic health care education in the form of awareness, health campaigns and health checks.

Week 1

Monday to Tuesday

Experience exotic and gorgeous Mongolia, learn basic language skills to communicate with local Mongolian people, get know about their ancient culture, visit the Chinggis Square & National Museum, and walk through ancient bazaars to capture the sounds, light and colors.

Wednesday to Friday

Starting from Wednesday, you will be engaged in various healthcare programs at the various schools.

A normal day will begin at 09:00 after your breakfast. We proceed to the school or to the community where the project has been planned and will be introduced by our coordinators. You will then take up each class for about 3 - 4 hours and teach them with the activities planned for that day. Return to our center for lunch and you will have the remaining day to plan for the next day.

Similarly, all the days of the week will have the same schedule, but activities will differ as per your plans and coordinator inputs.

Week 2 & Onwards

Monday to Friday

If you have choose to continue your second week with us in Mongolia, your typical day will begin at 09:00 wherein you will proceed to the local school to educate children as per the activities planned along with the coordinator. A typical mongolian lunch will be served at noon, between 12:00 to 13:00. You will then continue on your project until 17:00.

This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
