Orphanage's & Eco farming-1
Description: Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in summer programs designed to help/improve the vegetable farm of Childcare Center of Mongolia (Orphanage). But last 4 years orphanage decided to not continue their farming work because of lack of human resource and availability of land for farming. Since 2017 our organization managed to rent farming land for the Orphanage and they started their farming work on this land again. So our cooperation will start again on their farm since 2018. So one of international volunteers work will be helping for farming of the orphanage. Same time we do run small eco farm in same area to improve the method of eco friendly farm and help to poor families trough our work. Volunteers will work in vegetable farm.
