CYPPD is made up of an amazing group of volunteers. Without volunteers we wouldn't be able to do the work and support the children in the way that we do.
We're the people who actually make an impact in changing the world for the better - we love just endlessly talking about it to other people in the hope that we can grow our network and add to our team. Won't you Join us?

BATTUYA - Battuya is the Director of CYPPD. She’s worked with the organisation for 12 years. She started her career as a teacher and social worker and now dedicates her time to the disadvantaged children of Ulaanbaatar. She is a strong advocate for child rights. For Battuya, the most satisfying part of her work is being able to provide support to needy children and seeing a positive change in their life. Away from work she enjoys dancing and spending time with family and friends.
