Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in summer programs designed to improve an orphanage's vegetable farm at Buhug River. During the last years, we focused more on improving the facilities for kids and volunteers, and not much on the farming methods. The way it's done at the moment, farming and cultivating is not really productive and eco-friendly. Farmers in the area also face the same challenges. Despite the hard work farmers and children put in, the crop yields are low.

The aim of this project is to develop the farm as a training center for eco-farming, where local people and children can learn basic but important eco-farming methods and practices. The goal is to achieve the biggest harvest with the most effective methods for using the limited land. Volunteers will work in the vegetable eco-farm and develop the eco-farming training center. Vegetables from the eco-farm will be donated to the orphanage and local families.

Volunteers' main tasks are removing weeds in the field, working in the greenhouse, making water canals for the farm, making compost, preparing study materials for the children and locals, etc.

Study theme: Eco-farming methods and know-how from other countries. The future of the orphanage and the volunteer movement in Mongolia.

Project dates:

  • July 10 - July 23, 2016
  • July 23 - August 4, 2016
  • August 5 - August 18, 2016
