This project has the goal of fighting against one of Mongolia´s current major issues: malnutrition!
Due to a dry and harsh soil, it is very difficult to grow fruits and vegetables in Mongolia´s western region. Therefore, locals have a very poor diet, having many diseases caused by malnutrition.
The most effective way to diminish this issue is through the construction of green houses that not only allow the growth of the nutrients that these families desperately need on top of making the crops endure an extremely harsh winter.
In conclusion, the goal of this project is to build three green houses in the village of Sogoog (Bayan-Ulgii province, Mongolia).

About the author
Frederico Araújo (12th grade student, manager and founder of Creating Roots)
"This year, I had the incredible opportunity of travelling to Mongolia and be a part of a culture immersion programme complemented with a volunteer experience. There, I became aware of the problems that those communities face in their day to day lives and that prevent the proper development of the population. However, for my own surprise, most of thoses issues have really simple solutions.
In the village where I volunteered, Sogoog, I had the opportunity of meeting the CEO (Lena Khazidolda) of the NGO that successfully implemented the projects that changed and continue to change the villagers´ lives. Because of this, since I came back, I have been working with Lena and with one of my trip leader´(Aniya) so that we could develop initiatives that can change in a long-lasting and impactful way the lives of the people that we want to help."
Lena Khazidolda (CEO of Source of Steppe Nomads)
Lena was born and grown up in the village that now helps. To achieve this, she had to go through the difficulties of leaving your hometown to travel to the capital so that she could finish her education. Later on, she founded her own NGO, Source of Steppe Nomads, where she had the opportunity of expanding the support to the communities where she lived her childhood.
Source of Steppe Nomads is a local NGO that works in the western region of Mongolia with the mission of helping isolated minorities in projects related to health, education, enviroment and agriculture. In all of their projects, this NGO works in hand with local communities so that they become responsible for the sustainable development of the projects that are being implemented. In this way, it is assured that the first support given isn´t in vain.
