To create new settlement
The project (the rst one from this NGO) bene ted to the 20 members of a savings group in Erdenet city’s ger district. A ger district is a form of residential district in Mongolian settlements. They usually consist of parcels with one or more detached houses or gers (hence the name), surrounded by two-metre high wooden fences. The houses (whose surface’s average was equivalent to 30 square meters) have been built in a plot of land where the 20 families now live. Four sanitation facilities will be provided by the local government. The main issue faced by the NGO has been the weather since it delayed the start of the building works. The project could really start late March after the winter.
