EY Mongolia contributing to building a better working world one child at a time

EY Mongolia office consists of nearly 100 staff that normally exchange gifts with each other worth approximately $15 each during the holiday season. However, in 2015, instead of exchanging gifts, they have decided to collect that money to buy gifts to the underprivileged children.

The group that they have decided to support was a small kindergarten located near the dump ground in the city. The parents of the children who attend that kindergarten make a living by collecting items from the dump ground. Mongolian winters are famous for its harshness, where the average temperature is close to -20C during the day and it get as low as -35C at night. The kindergarten is located in a ger, a traditional tent-like structure that is heated by coal. The gift exchange fund of EY Mongolia staff totaled approximately $750, which was used to buy warm socks and gloves, coloring books, story books and some sweets to make a gift package for all of the 20 children that attend the kindergarten. We make a better working world one company at a time and one child at a time.
