Village Earth is happy to announce the newest member of our Global Affiliate Program “Ger Community Mapping Center” based in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Ger Community Mapping Center (GCMC) is a non – governmental organization dedicated to sustainable, equal access urban development through community engagement and participatory decision-making. The GCMC, formerly a community group named Eco Friendly Community, has been doing community mapping activities in the ger areas since 2012.

Ger promotes community mapping as a planning, awareness and outreach tool to advocate for sustainable, participatory and eco-friendly solutions to address local urban problems.​​ ​​​The central focus of their work is to engage local communities in discussions about issues they face in their local environment. As a former community group, they know how to reach out to and involve community members and do this by facilitating discussions with community members through community workshops, street meetings and gatherings. At these discussions they collectively identify issues, solutions and the next steps to improve these people’s communities.

We encourage you to follow Ger Community Mapping Project on Facebook and Twitter.

Village Earth is proud to represent and support so many amazing organizations around the globe.  These organizations understand the challenges in their own community and environment, and can generate creative solutions.  They often, however, need additional support to gain greater control over the decisions and resources that shape their lives, whether it’s cleaner water, protected land, thriving enterprises or better access to healthcare and education. Your donation to any of Village Earth’s Global Affiliates is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by U.S. law.
