People in Need in Mongolia
PEOPLE IN NEED
People in Need (PIN) non-government organization was established in 1992 by a group of Czech war correspondents and volunteers, who were no longer satisfied with merely relaying information about ongoing conflicts and began sending out aid. It gradually became a professional humanitarian organization, striving to provide aid in troubled regions and to support adherence to human rights around the world.
Over the past 27 years, People in Need has become one of the biggest nonprofit organizations in Central Europe. In addition to humanitarian aid and human rights, it now also targets education and helps people living in social exclusion. Today, the work focuses on relief, development aid, advocacy for human rights, democratic freedom, field social work, education, awareness, and information. Currently, People in Need is operating in 25 countries, including Mongolia.

Today, apart from providing emergency relief, PIN builds the capacity of cooperatives, civil society organizations and local authorities, supports sustainable living, strengthens higher education, promotes environmental protection, and raises awareness about air pollution.
