Dynamic and learning organization that serves educators and schools in promoting democratic values for Mongolian youth.
The Mongolian Education Alliance exists to strengthen and sustain the network of local and international partners that contribute to open society values, transparency, accountability, participation and equal access, in the Mongolian Education Sector, identify underserved areas of education reform and initiate projects supporting reform in teacher development, student centered learning, and community involvement.
Five years have passed since the establishment of the Mongolian Educational Alliance (MEA). The theory claims that eighty percent of the person’s identity gets formed by the age of five. During these years MEA has successfully constructed comprehensive characteristics of NGO in its objectives, operations and internal and external relationships.
Within the scope of its operation MEA made solid contribution to Mongolian education reform which is the pride and inspiration of MEA staff members.
The achievements, successes, operation scope and content are the results of cooperation and participation of our local and international partner organizations and individuals.
Today we are assessing our achievements and setting our goals and objectives. On the verge of the new year we wish health, happiness, work satisfaction, sharp mindedness and solutions to our colleagues, teachers, educators, local and international partners in education sector.
