Mongolia Project

Project Description

Since 2005, Dr. Ueno has organized an annual study abroad trip for her seminar students to learn about living conditions and problems in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The purpose of the tour was to provide the students with field-work experience with conducting research in a developing transition country.
The seminar created several programs such as the Community Building Youth Leadership (CBYL) Program. UCRCA believes community driven development is the most meaningful and effective method to improve the living conditions in an urban community. The program’s goal is to develop students' abilities to become future leaders. UCRCA also spearheaded a campaign, “Safe, Clean, and Green Dambadarja,” and seminar students took the initiative in organizing “Cleanup Dambadarjaa Day” in 2011, alongside the student of Ulaanbaatar’s No.58 School. The No. 58 school made uniforms and set up a “School Clean-up Day.” In addition to the program, UCRCA members developed and published “Wa-Mou Daijiten: Japanese-Mongolian Dictionary(computer app)” in 2014.
The Mongolia Project is possible thanks to the longstanding collaboration and partnership between UCRCA and the Zorig Foundation in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

Mongolia 2012: challenges ahead

Since 2006, my seminar students and I have organized and implemented an annual research/training trip to Mongolia. This tour has the following ?my? educational purpose at Kwansei Gakuin University: to recommend my seminar students, to go abroad and learn about different people, cultures, and values, especially in a developing country. I selected Mongolia a field of study because I have visited and familiarized myself with the country since 1996.
