In August of 2014, Chimgee Haltarhuu of Mission Manduhai traveled to Mongolia. A meeting with the National Center Against Violence in Ulaanbaatar ended with a five-year agreement to set up a hotline for abused women. Also discussed was the tour route for the 2015 Mission Manduhai trip, which will be in Eastern Mongolia. A two-day trip to this region helped to get a feel for possible transportation difficulties, and the best route is being planned to reach the largest amount of people.
A meeting was held with Purevbadam Khad, the owner of the Mongolian State Circus, to discuss the use of acts from her circus and to rent a vehicle for next year’s tour.
Another meeting was held with Yanjenbeleg Batmunkh, who directs a circus group in UB, to discuss using some of her acts. Chimgee will combine these acts with her American Circus Juventas students to make next year’s international program.
Chimgee Haltarhuu was interviewed by Mongol TV HD about her work in the United States and her Mission Manduhai work in Mongolia. This is one of Mongolia’s top watched channels, so the interview was seen by many Mongolians for sure.
