Mongolia: Education and practical skills
Under the Czech Development Agency programme for sending Czech educators to developing countries, People in Need coordinate cooperation between Czech and Mongolian universities. The main objective is to improve the quality of education on Mongolian universities so that their graduates are sufficiently prepared for the current needs of the country.
This exchange of expert knowledge takes place through courses of lectures, summer schools, study trips and mutual cooperation of Czech and Mongolian students and educators on expert research.
Increasing the quality of education at the University of Ulaanbaatar
University collaboration on understanding the interaction between the livestock and freely roaming cattle
Support of secondary vocational education in the fields of agriculture and the processing industry
To improve the situation, People in Need supported vocational and secondary schools and provided financial and expert support directed at modernization and creation of new study departments. These cover mainly education of forestry and woodworking, crop and animal production, agriculture mechanic and the cooking/baking trade. The objective was to change the system of education in a way it would reflect the demand of the labour market and the development as yet unused potential of the region.
In 2012 PIN helped to establish a new forestry department in Sukhbaataru and a department of agricultural mechanization at the vocational school Zuunkharaa in Selenge Aimag . Studies at new school departments were launched for the school year 2013 to 2014, with the first students taking their places behind their desks on 1st September 2013.
