Mobicom Corporation and UNICEF renew their cooperation
21 April, Ulaanbaatar - UNICEF and Mobicom Corporation signed a memorandum of understanding to continue working together for the well-being of children and women. Cooperation between UNICEF and Mobicom began in 2016, when the two organizations started working together to build standard sanitation facilities in local schools. As part of the agreement, Mobicom Corporation invested about 1.9 billion MNT in the construction of improved sanitation facilities in 80 schools nationwide. In addition, the “Child Helpline 108” project was initiated and successfully implemented, stabilized and handed over to the Government of Mongolia.
Under the MoU, the two parties committed to addressing the issues arising from COVID-19 impact on children’s right to education and the situation of inequality in the education sector. The organizations will work together on promotion of family-friendly workplaces by establishing breastfeeding and child-friendly rooms not only in workplaces but also in customer areas. Mobicom expressed its commitment to improving human resources policy and regulations and disseminating the good practices and child rights supporting initiatives within the Mongolian corporate networks and business community. These include the establishment of breastfeeding and drying rooms in offices and service centers, and the provision of flexible working hours for parents with young children. Furthermore, the partnership will aim at improving the 108 helpline and introducing innovative technological platforms to foster the participation of children and youth in areas that concern them.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
