In 2013, a UN General Assembly report highlighted the extreme level of both poverty and human rights violations in Mongolia. The report showed concern in the areas of implementation across almost all social policies, ranging from domestic violence to trafficking.
In January, World Learning Mongolia conducted a TAAP (Transforming Agency Access and Power) inclusion analysis and identified that the country has many inclusion-sensitive legal and institutional frameworks, however, the enforcement and implementation is poor. Despite good efforts, this results in particularly vulnerable groups such as children, women, nomadic herders and LGBTI people remaining vulnerable.
Partnering with a local partner and World Learning Mongolia, World Learning Europe have developed a project to rebuild the capacity of Civil Society Organizations so that they have the skills to promote and increasingly important, protect the human rights and welfare of vulnerable groups.
More specifically, our programme will focus on increasing access to services for vulnerable group and reduce discrimination of women who are victims of domestic violence; people of disabilities; internal migrant workers; nomadic herders; LGBTI people; people living with HIV/AIDS; and Kazakh ethnic communities.
As the project progresses, we will make sure to keep you updated on further development.
