- Before you arrive in Mongolia, you can get information about
volunteering short term from the Peace Corps office in Ulaanbaatar. If
you email Jay, the PCVC, he can connect you with several local
agencies and friends that may be interested in recruiting short term
volunteers. I think it would be best to organize as much of it as
possible before you head out, however. In Mongolia, things have a way
of not quite panning out like you expected when you shoot from the hip.
I know that Habitat for Humanity was active in Darkhan as recently as
this last summer. When I met the people involved in the HFH housing
development project back then, they all seemed quite happy to be a
part of it. And they made decent houses, too. A little searching
online could get you some additional information, I'm sure.
