Project Description:

The Ger for life project has made some very interesting changes in the past for project members and participants. For example, we have provided life skills training, counseling, and pre-employment internships for children and mothers living at the project site. The main targets of the project were single mothers, children, and people with disabilities from poor families. In December 2021, the project began to involve deaf people. This is because there are more than 12,000 deaf people in our country, and these people are left behind in various social interactions and have little opportunity to work. During the project, We have realized that an adult deaf person earns $ 60 a month and they want to work hard if the opportunity was equal. The project team also learned about the situation in which deaf children do not receive an education. Therefore, on December 21, 2021, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Mongolian National Association of the Deaf and the Rotary Club of Ulaanbaatar Central. As a result, bakery, sewing, and personal development training successfully commenced within the framework of the project in the Chingeltei district. So far, more than 30 homeless people have successfully participated in the training sessions, and they have been able to get a job from the beginning and the project delivered invaluable results. In addition to the more than 50 people currently living in the ger, about 70 people with hearing impairments are directly benefiting from the project. For example, the participation of deaf people improved their skills not only from the lessons they learn, but also in their mental and social discovery. Now, they can communicate with others more fluently with discipline, and gained broader sorts of employment skills. For the deaf, 26 people are directly benefiting from the project in bakery training, 20 in Mongolian language training, 12 in content production training, and 12 in youth personal development training. The project also involved about 200 people, including vulnerable groups and people with disabilities, who have participated in past events such as health screenings and one-time trainings. In addition, there are so many volunteers including teachers and sign language interpreters. The direct results of the project are changes in the training of family members, motivation to start a family business, creating a warm family atmosphere, participation in individual projects and programs, and learning the skills of teamwork.
