Aiming to tackle this issue, Lorinet Foundation is supporting World Vision Mongolia in implementing “Young Family Livelihood Improvement” program over the next 3 years aimed to directly engage150 most vulnerable young families from “Ger” district (large unplanned settlements, which lack access to basic services) and enable them to transition to sustainable livelihood.
The program will provide ultra-poor households with training, coaching, access to savings and consumption support that leads to independent income generating through having a regular job or household business within a certain timeline.
World Vision has been working in Mongolia since 1995 and is one of the leading Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Mongolia with keen focus on child protection and poverty elimination.
