How we are using virtual technology for social good

A strong and empowered civil society is the key to a more sustainable world. Mongolia has an active and diverse group of civil society organisations that are accelerating the development of the country. Unfortunately, they often lack the technical capacity, knowledge, experience, and resources to effectively achieve their goals, especially in rural areas. We handed over virtual technology sets to youth-focused NGOs in the countryside and Ulaanbaatar, to help them better contribute to civil society.

Ukraine is heading for a humanitarian catastrophe. Caritas insists on ensuring access to aid

“The events which began early this morning will inevitably lead to a colossal humanitarian catastrophe. It is impossible to believe that in the 21st century in the centre of Europe people have to wake up at 5am from explosions and the sound of air raid sirens,” said Tetiana Stawnychy, President of Caritas Ukraine, in reaction to the full-scale attack launched in the early hours of today in the country. Caritas is deeply concerned about the impact of this intervention on the local population, who have already been living in a critical condition eight years after the start of the crisis that killed 14,000 people and displaced another 1.5 million. The COVID-19 pandemic has also greatly aggravated the situation.

Building a society where young Mongolians thrive
