Our Live with the Mongolian Nomads project offers volunteers the unique opportunity to practice nomadic life, whilst experiencing the lifestyle of this ancient civilisation.

Forty percent of Mongolia’s population are still from Nomadic families and they live in a manner that has barely changed in the past thousand years.

Volunteers will live with their nomadic family in a large, round tent known as a Ger. Your daily life may include caring for livestock, riding horses, herding yaks and cattle, helping to produce dairy products and even teaching a little English to the children and host parents.

Your host family will welcome you into their way of life and in return, you may wish to teach them a few of the games, songs, sport types and arts of your home town.
