CEU Alumni and Friends in Mongolia have had a busy spring, launching a number of projects including aid to a children’s home, planning environmental stewardship hikes and others.
Earlier this month several alumni traveled to the Erdem Center, a home for vulnerable children in Ulan Bator. The old Soviet-era building is home to 30 school-age kids removed by the authorities from unfavorable situations such as neglect or alcoholism. The center is run by primarily by volunteers and its funding is sporadic.
