Local partner : Parent Teacher Association in Mongolia (PTA)

The issue

  • After a growing trend of settlement among the nomadic population in mixed areas made up of yurts and concrete buildings in the suburbs of Ulan Bator, these populations perpetuate their former lifestyle including hygienic practices that can be inappropriate in highly populated areas

  •  The drinking water supplied at the stands is transported in containers that are often inadequate and the inhabitants only have precarious and unsanitary latrines, which leads to many waterborne diseases
  • The nursery school “The Future’ in Tuv province, as many schools in rural areas, does not have a decent access to water or sanitary facilities. Yet, school is the only place where many children from nomadic families can have hygiene education
