Munkh-Otgon, a 9-year-old boy, fills the water tanks outside of his family house in Mongolia.
Clean water and sanitation are important to the health and well being of his community. They are also part of the community benefits of World Vision’s child sponsorship program.
Otgoo (his nickname) is a sponsored child who loves to help his parents by doing chores like pumping water.
Although Otgoo was born into a family with no livestock, he loves horses and other herding animals. One of his dreams is to train race horses. “I am not scared when I ride horse,” he says. “I like it when horse gallops. I race with my friends and I beat them a couple of times.”
His other dream is to become a policeman.
His siblings, two brothers and one sister, graduated from vocational training centers and he has every reason to believe he can be successful as well.
Family members were sponsored and had useful training, which they apply in their everyday life. They found their path through World Vision’ support. The whole family has benefited from World Vision’s projects.
