So happy to move into a new ger~
Geegia is a 15-year-old girl, a ninth grade student who lives with her mother and a half-sister. Her mother divorced twice and raises two children alone. Her half-sister is 8 years old (second grade student). Previously, they lived in a tire repair shop with the worst living condition.
“We started to assist this family in December 2015. At the beginning, they lived in the relative's house then moved to her grandparent’s house. However, it was far away from school and workplace and it’s about 20 km away. Finally, they moved to the tire repair shop where her mother’s workplace is. Geegia’s mother rent a tire repair shop with her friend and they were business partners to share the revenue of the shop. Even Geegia’s mother was a hard working woman, she was unable to provide a healthy living environment for her two children. The income was unstable and there was not enough living space in the tire repair shop. The living space and room were filled with the tire and the plastic burnt smell. To consider that two children are girls and gradually enter the youth stage, we believe that we should help them move into a new ger where could be their new home to stay safely. We are glad to see Geegia’s smile again after they moved into their new home. Geegia’s family is so happy to have a new beginning of their lives and two children enjoy studying at home after school. They want to say thanks to all of you who have donated through this GlobalGiving project. Thank you for all your assistance. I really appreciate your support in helping Geegia’s family.”

Fight poverty for children
Most of us live comfortably in the world, however there are many children and families still living in poverty. Some people are unable to fight poverty because of unemployment, low income, illness, disability, etc. which caused by family accidents. We are unable to help all people, however, we will do our best and help as many as we can. Giving them a home is the first step to help fight poverty for children.
We have provided new gers for 3 families and repaired worn wooden floors for 2 families in this quarter. We will continue to help children and families to build their new home in Mongolia and we are glad to have you with us. Thank you!
Wish you all the best!
