PCCE has been working together with the ‘Strengthening Children’s’ Rights’’ project of the Norwegian Lutheran Mission in Mongolia to empower dormitory children and promote their health and welfare. PCCE has developed the first draft of school dormitory standards. With the result of our initiative and cooperation, the school dormitory standard is approved by the Mongolian Agency for Standardization and Metrology in September 2019.
‘Cyberbullying- Current situation in Mongolia’ population based consultancy survey had been completed in July 2017 with the help of the Mongolia Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, and the World Bank. The PCCE team has revealed the current situation of cyberbullying among middle and high school students and subsequent recommendations were provided for decision makers, professionals, teachers, students and parents.
With the purpose of protecting the rights of seniors staying in residential care centers and preventing violence against the elderly in Mongolia, PCCE implemented the ‘Right of the Elderly’ project with Canada Fund Mongolia in 2016.
PCCE initiated and developed the state standards for the disabled and elderly care service, which addressed human rights for the first time in Mongolia. The standards, MNS 5798-2016 residential care services for disabilities and MNS 5823-2016 residential care services for the elderly are reviewed and amended.
With financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), GIZ is implementing the ‘Education for Sustainability’ project. PCCE has reviewed the following ISO 1400 family standards and could get the verification by authorized organizations such as the Mongolian Agency for Standardization and Metrology, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Ministry of Environment, Green Development and Tourism in November 2016.
ISO 14000 family standards:
The “Strengthening Primary Care Service” project was implemented by the Philanthropy Center for Children and the Elderly with the support of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Mongolia in Sep 2016.
Under the project, the PCCE refurnished and equipped a new room for the local elderly care center. The necessary equipment, gadgets and tools included four multifunctional beds specially designed for elderly patients by worldwide recognized hospital beds manufacturer, the Czech company LINET spol s.r.o.
Today, more than 80% of senior citizens live with their descendants. Traditionally, the adult offspring and other relatives provide marital and psychological support for their elderly relatives. But, the availability of this kind of informal social care by family members can be expected to decline as a result of having fewer children and increasing internal and external migration. The children who live further away from their elderly parents, and have no financial means to support their parents, are unable to provide intensive care.
As of today, 335 elderly people with no children or relatives to take care of them are residing at one of the eleven private and state owned elderly care homes operating in different aimags and districts, and at the national level. However, there are a greater number of elderly people who have applied for care services. However, the existing care services run by the state are not adequate to respond to the needs of the elderly and isolated people.
In line with this, as facing an ageing population and the economic strains of changing dependency ratios, Mongolia has to initiate better elderly care services and create models and programs to meet the need of this important demographic.
With the support and initiative of the Mongolia Ministry of Population Development and Social Protection and the Multi-Sectoral Technical Assistance Project of the World Bank, PCCE had conducted this study from July to November 2014.
PCCE believes that continuous growth and development is critical to maintaining the excellence of our staff, and supporting the mission of our work now and in the future.
In recent years, our staff has grown their knowledge and development skills in not only Mongolia but also in America, Japan, Norway and Thailand.
