Mongolian Ger

$1,500

On the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, nearly 65,000 families live in dire poverty. Many have migrated from the countryside in search of work and they often live in crowded gers — traditional Mongolian homes — with extended family. Some are essentially homeless, living in whatever makeshift dwellings they can find.

Others live in the city's largest garbage dump, where they earn a living collecting recyclables from the refuse.

The families who live here are mostly comprised of parents, and often single mothers, with young children. Without a consistent source of water or heat, their health and hygiene is extremely poor, with frequent outbreaks of lice and diarrhea, and many children are bullied at school because of the way they look and smell. When kids are out of school, and forced to live in crowded gers, they are also far more apt to run away and live on the streets.

Your gift today will provide a home to a family in need bringing them safety and stability and keeping children safe in the loving care of their parents.

A group gift is a fun way to give a gift. When you create a group gift, you get your family, friends, or coworkers to buy it together. You choose a date, the occasion, and who it's for, then get people to join in.
