M.Bulgansor is happily playing on her mother’s lap. As she giggles her mother, D.Nandintsetseg (Nandia), 19, looks down at her beautiful daughter and smiles.
Bulgansor is a happy and healthy 7 month old baby girl. She has never been sick and is getting bigger every day. Her mother, university student Nandia, is convinced that her baby is so healthy because for the first six months of her life she only fed her breast milk.
Prior to giving birth Nandia received regular antenatal care at the Delgermurun Family Clinic in Murun, Khuvsgul. She attended a range of training sessions for expectant mothers, including one supported by UNICEF on infant and young child feeding. At this training, Nandia learnt the importance of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a child’s life and made the decision take a year off from her university studies to exclusively breastfeed.

The boy monks who live in this monastery come from very different backgrounds but all have been selected for a life of prayer and contemplation. Until recently, aside from studying religion and scriptures, the children here did not have access to basic education. This changed two years ago, thanks to a UNICEF-supported initiative to reach out-of-school children.
