Mongolia, referred to as the “Land of Eternally Blue Sky”


Mongolia is an Asian country that borders Russia and China and is home to just over 3 million people. It is often referred to as the “Land of Eternally Blue Sky” because it has, on average, 250 sunny days each year. Each year, our teams have the privilege of working both in the city and in more rural areas of Mongolia working alongside Mongolian colleagues and educating the country’s future leaders.

ELIC started sending teachers to Mongolia in 1990. In those early years it seemed that Mongolia was frozen in another era; the capital, Ulaanbaatar, had the look and feel of a 1950s European city. Since that time, changes have been fast and have affected virtually every area of life. The United Nations recently estimated that over the next five years Mongolia will have one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Join our Mongolia team in the privilege of having front-row seats as these monumental changes continue.
