Story

Hi - thanks for stopping by! I have been living in Mongolia for nearly 8 years, and I am raising these funds to support my MBA studies at the London School of International Business. It's a 12-month course, delivered online and the start date is January 9th 2017. I teach leadership in the business school at Mongolia International University, and this MBA is a requirement for me to continue to do so, thus serving the next generation of leaders in this developing country.

I serve as Executive Director of Seedtime, a small but established local NGO, that focuses on economic capacity training through micro business, micro-finance, and skills training. We have seen many micro-businesses come into being, and we have established a savings and credit cooperative in the Gobi Desert, with another due to start in another part of the country.

After many years of 'giving out', I am looking forward to feeding my mind once more, and of course those I serve will benefit! Being dependent on a local salary, plus donations, however, I have no means of independently raising the course fee. Hence my appeal now. I'd love to be able to raise the full amount before the start of the course, if possible!

Regarding administration of the funds: although I am resident in Mongolia, I am a British citizen, and the funds will be administered through my UK bank account in accordance with JustGiving's terms of service.

You can find me on Facebook at: facebook.com/paulmongolia, and you can contact me by email at: seagull@hushmail.com . Thanks again for your consideration, and if you have any questions, just let me know!

    The course is due to start on 9th of January. It's doable with some reconfiguration of my work timetable, and will make a significant difference to my long-term impact here. I LOVE these people, but I know I need to feed my mind with this MBA, in order to further help them. So please join me in this, and give whatever you can. All the money raised will go to pay down the course fee (minus of course JustGiving's 5% charge) Thank you so much!
