Arvaikheer Learning Center
Welcome to the very first BOOKBRIDGE Learning Center! Originating out of a scout exchange program between Uuganaa‘s scout group in Övörkhangai province and scouts from Siedlung Taizé, the learning center opened its doors on September 2, 2009. Since then, it has turned into an important educational institution in Arvaikheer and has been awarded several times by the Mongolian government for its achievements in education.
Uugantsetseg “Uuganaa” Gantumur has been BOOKBRIDGE’s first Community Hero. Her engagement and commitment for her students and community is outstanding. With her approach “Look at the girl, look at the boy“, she revolutionizes the conservative Mongolian education landscape by emphazising the importance of individual coaching and granting responsibility to young people in order to turn them into active and responsible citizens.
