Volunteer Teaching in Mongolia
The children from the children’s home located in Bayanzurkh District, outskirts area of Ulaanbaatar enjoy meeting people from overseas and learning about different cultures. Teachers, with or without experience, can make very significant and worthwhile contribution to the kids living in the centre. You must love children and understand their behaviour, as you will be surrounded by them on a daily basis. Their friendliness can often become over-exuberant for those not used to being with little ones.
Aims & Objectives
The aims and objectives are to help the kids grow their confidence and gather educational support which will help them in many ways in the future.
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 Chinggis Square and the 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 the teaching programs at the schools.
A normal day will begin at 9 am after your breakfast. Then we proceed towards the school or to the community where the project is planned and the project will be introduced to you by our coordinators. You will then take up each class for about 3 – 4 hours and teach them 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 days of the week will have the same schedule, but activities will differ as per your plans and coordinator’s feedback.

This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen
Mongolia is truly one of the world’s last undiscovered travel destinations and the safest country to visit. It is a land where you can experience wide-open spaces, cobalt blue skies, forests, deserts, crystal clear rivers and lakes, and the traditional hospitality of the nomads.
Ulaanbaatar the capital is a beautiful city offering big contrasts, one minute you’re dodging the path of a Hummer H2 and the next you’re mystified by groaning Buddhist monks at Gandan Khiid. It’s a wild place that bursts into life after slumbering through a long winter. This ever-changing city may be the biggest surprise of your Mongolian adventure.

Mongolia is a landlocked sovereign state in East Asia between China and Russia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia. With only 1.7 people per km², Mongolia has the lowest population density among all independent countries in the world, and it is this vast and majestic emptiness that is bringing the traveller, as it does, into a close communion with nature and its nomadic inhabitants. Ulaanbaatar or Ulan Bator is Mongolia’s capital and largest city. The city is not part of any aimag (province), and its population as of 2015 was over 1.4 million; almost half of the country’s total population. The city was founded in 1639 as a nomadic Buddhist monastic centre. In 1778, it settled permanently at its present location, the junction of the Tuul and Selbe rivers. The Mongolian capital elicits as much shock as it does excitement.
