The Verbist Care Center ( VCC) opened its doors in 1995 through the Missionary Of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (CICM Fathers) in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. Due to the increasing number of street children living in the manholes of the capital city, there was need for a center to be created to respond to this need. The center has received over 120 homeless children.
At the moment we have 65 children living in the VCC and about 30 students. The 65 children living in the center all attend classes. Their ages rang from 1 year nine months to 19 years old. Some of these 30 students study in Technical and Vocational Colleges in and around the capital and some study at Private and State Universities in Ulaanbaatar. These students live in dormitories and apartments. We have also about 10 students who have graduated from Universities, Technical and Vocational Colleges.
