It is difficult for me to find words to describe the amazing work Veloo Foundation does for children in Mongolia. When I first heard about them, I was amazed by their kind hearted mission and their dedication to see it come alive. I believe our future starts with our young ones and the work Veloo foundation doing for the youths in Mongolia is an innumerable contribution to a bright future. I am inspired by their mission and honored to take small part in their endeavor.

I had the privilege of volunteering at one of Veloo's annual fundraising galas and it was absolutely amazing. Seeing how the foundation has helped some of the most disadvantaged communities and children is truly heart-warming. Their kindergartens serve as a beacon of hope and a pathway out of the dump and into a world of endless opportunities. It is truly mesmerizing how much of a difference and positive impact the foundation has had on the lives of these children and their families and I hope they continue to profoundly contribute to the progress of helping the disadvantaged communities of Mongolia.

Veloo is full of people who truly want to make the world a safer place for kids. I had the opportunity to volunteer for Veloo Foundation this year, and it was one of the best experiences because many different people came together for one united purpose. I am proud to support Veloo Foundation as their main aim is fully focused on children. It's truly incredible to see the differences being made to the children of Ulaanchuluut garbage dump.

My experiences with Veloo are the most eye opening and heart warming memories. Thanks to this foundation that many children who used to scavenge garbage in a dumpster now has a better education and a brighter future. Not only the children but the parents are also provided with accommodations and jobs. There are now 2 running kindergartens which provide the kids with shelter, food and most importantly, quality education.
I can’t possibly be more appreciative and grateful for the work Veloo Foundation has been doing and will continue to do for our future that is the children.

I’ve experienced lots of things such as learning English, making international friends, loving and understanding children in need during my first charity of Veloo foundation. When I help translating things for kids, I feel like I’m a bridge between two cultures. However I realized that It’s not a big deal that we have different languages when it comes to good intented work. All of the volunteers at Veloo was warm-hearted and friendly. Furthermore, I thought that we are humans who love each other with nice words and actions no matter where we come from. It would be spectacular if we keep helping others who need us! Society needs charities. That’s all I learned from my volunteer experience at Veloo.

Veloo Foundation is an amazing organization that truly helps children In the neediest district in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
I have experienced first hand the impact Veloo Foundation has had on the kids: they are happy, educated and cared for in the greatest possible way.
These childrens’ families scavenge in the garbage dump leaving them with little to no supervision. As a result they are unable to focus on their education often following in their parents’ footsteps to scavenge.
Veloo foundation has now 2 running kindergartens that open their doors to provide a safe, warm haven. Kids not only get shelter and food but guidance and care from their teachers and Veloo Foundation staff.
Veloo foundation also helps men and women that scavenge by training them and hiring them, giving them the power to turn their lives around.
It is truly a worthwhile organization worth contributing to!
