Podcast | Protected! Podcast Ep 7: City Kids, Country Kids and the School Shutdown in Mongolia

The Alliance

Schools in Mongolia shut down in January 2020, long before many other countries considered nationwide school closures. Amarbayasgalan Erdenebileg from World Vision Mongolia tells Hani Mansourian, the Alliance's Co-coordinator, what effect the school closure had on children in rural and urban settings.

Plus, WVI Mongolia has developed different programs to help children cope with remote learning and staying at home. We discuss one remote learning plan designed to avoid the risk of online harms. Plus a simple but fun way to bring the family together and learn about positive parenting, that does not involve any screen time at all!
