2) How to apply and join the projects!!!
A: Applying through the partners!!!
Volunteers have to apply not directly to us, but through our partner Workcamp Organizations (WOs) of their own countries unless you live in Mongolia or in countries that have no partners.
In this exceptional case, they need to send the application form to MCE.
B: How much should volunteers pay?

C: The detailed information of the project
By 1-2 months before the projects, volunteers will receive ”Information Sheets” (details of the project, what to bring, the meeting point, how to get there, etc.) together with “Acceptance Letter” and “MCE Volunteers’ Guide”, through the partner organizations.
D) Book the flights as soon as being accepted!
Don’t wait for the Information Sheets, otherwise you may miss economical flights!
Workcamps start in the morning of the first day. And they finish in the afternoon of the last day.
So, we advise volunteers to arrive / leave Mongolia at least a day before/ after the projects because volunteers should not expect so much sightseeing during the projects.
(if you want to do it, please do it before/ after the workcamps!)
And it is possible to stay in the cheap guest houses (around 10$ per night) together with volunteers in the same workcamp before/ after the workcamps! (For the details, please wait for the info.sheets!)
3) General Qualification
a) Best motivation for the voluntary work (special good skills and power are not necessary)
b) Responsibility to keep rules of MCE & the partners and cooperation to run the workcamps
c) Best efforts to understand and respect cultures both of the hosts and other volunteers
d) Open mind to make friends with trying to speak English (in the groups) and the local language
e) To adapt and enjoy simple conditions of the living such as food and accommodation
Though it’d be very funny and dramatic time for you, if your motivation is only for enjoying holidays, please don’t apply and do just travel. If it is more for voluntary service to make a better world and friendship with local people and other volunteers, you are super welcome!!
