UNITED against child abuse and human trafficking

Although the Mongolian government has adopted and passed many laws on domestic violence, children’s rights, and child protection issues, the implementation and effectiveness of these laws are not satisfactory. According to the General Prosecutor’s office, between 2015 and 2016 there were 298 children who were sexually assaulted. Approximately 48% of those victims were assaulted by their family members or relatives. That’s where Lantuun Dohio come in.

We believe that a child who grows up in a loving and caring environment is less susceptible to become a victim of human trafficking and/or become an abuser. Therefore, our main approach is to work with children in vulnerable areas from very young ages and engrave self-worth and respect in their innocent minds before a dark shadow nests in it.

OUR APPROACH

Our approach focuses on prevention, education, and advocacy. Within this approach, we aim to make positive changes at both the individual and family levels through direct social services, education, and public awareness programs. Building on the increased public awareness and mass attention to the causes, Lantuun Dohio organizes social movement to change the social norm regarding human trafficking, child abuse, and domestic violence cases. Lantuun Dohio advocates for a better legal environment for protection of victims, preventative actions, rehabilitation services, accountability for perpetrators, and access to both effective civil and criminal remedies. Below are some of our accomplishments:

THROUGH PREVENTION

Magic Mongolia Child Protection and Development Center

Magic Mongolia is our biggest long-term project. The purpose of the project is to create a safe-haven for vulnerable children via our child protection and development center in Bayankhoshuu, the most secluded and under-developed area of the city of Ulaanbaatar. Bayankhoshuu is a district on the outskirts of the capital city, where the rates of domestic violence, alcoholism, and unemployment are very high. The project was officially launched in January of 2017 and the construction of the Magic Mongolia Child Development & Protection Center started in April of 2017. The planning and building of the center was funded by a massive international grassroots movement, by the Mongolian people and, by in-kind donations of multiple national companies.

The opening ceremony of the center was held September 15-17, 2017. The center consists of two eco-friendly buildings, playground area, small storage, basketball court, greenhouse, and yurt housing for the center’s staff. The buildings are built in a sustainable fashion with zero emissions, and the ability to solely depend on solar energy during the summer months, zero land pollution, and eco-friendly water treatment and waste management systems. The center is also built in such a way that it is accessible for the disabled.

By the end of the year, we enrolled 50 children in our 2 kindergarten classes and started hiring and researching ways to provide protection service within the law.

Website and Social Media

Our website www.lantuundohio.org has become fully operational, and our Lantuun Dohio USA Facebook page has become operational and active in educating the public on the information about human trafficking and other related subjects.

Publishing Books

Publishing Books uNew College Student” Educational Comic Book – Published in 2017, the comic book provides complete information for successful adjustment to urban life for new students who have moved from rural areas. The comic book also contains much needed information about the danger of human trafficking, especially under the guise of false advertisements for well-paying jobs abroad, and too good to be true scholarship opportunities.

THROUGH EDUCATION

OPEN YOUR EYES

Open Your Eyes Campaign is a global movement -that started in Ulaanbaatar – against sexual abuse. Unsettling sexual assault cases like that of a five-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted by her relative and a thirteen-year-old old girl who was raped and brutally murdered in hotel room by two young men were the main reason behind the movement.

Lantuun Dohio USA joined the Open Your Eyes campaign by organizing a gathering in front of the Capitol in Washington D.C. Soon afterwards, Mongolian communities around the world joined the movement by posting pictures with the Open Your Eyes poster. Lantuun Dohio USA collected and sent signatures for the petition, resulting in an executive order which canceled the forensic medical examination fee for all children under 18 who are victims of any crime was issued. Lantuun Dohio is still demanding that the Ministry of Tourism implement strict regulations on all hotels and hostels that do not ID clients and serve minors.

THROUGH ACVOCACY

Magic Bag

The Magic Bag project was again successful in delivering gifts to about ten thousand children during the holiday season in the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia where the poorest families are concentrated. This effort was organized not only to give a one-time gift, but to also start paying attention to and giving the necessary care to children living in the neglected parts of Ulaanbaatar. Going door to door while distributing the gifts has proved to be an important and effective way to identify victims of domestic abuse or extreme neglect, so that we may provide follow up help.

”Parallel Universe” Art Gallery

Lantuun Dohio NPO partnering with Tusgal Photo Studio and UB Art Gallery organized and held a documentary photo gallery exhibition “Parallel Universe” between Jan 11-17, 2017 at UB Art Gallery. The gallery not only drove awareness of human trafficking and child abuse and neglect to the public, official, and media, but also introduced a solution through The Magic Mongolia Project, a Child Development and Protection Center .

USA Events

Lantuun Dohio USA had a successful fundraising event with Mongolian business owners on April 29th, 2017 at the Mongolian Embassy in Washington D.C. After this successful event, we were able to provide a substantial amount of funding for purchasing the land for the Magic Mongolia Project. Through many forms of donations, Lantuun Dohio USA was able to help fund the Magic Mongolia Project when the funds were needed the most.

The work they do is invaluable. Human trafficking is a dark secret still in many countries…people want to look away and drink their coffee while reading news on their Ipad…but for the victims of human trafficking, life is one long nightmare of forced sex and beatings…often when they are less than 12 years old ! To do what Lantuun Dohio USA does is to provide hope that we can someday stop this crime from ever happening again.

The work Lantuun Dohio is doing to protect children and raise awareness about the problems of child abuse and human trafficking is important not only to Mongolia, but also to the world.
Regardless of how tired and exhausted I get, I feel instant happiness and joy by simply seeing how our kids are improving day by day, right in front of my eyes.
