Founded in 2007, Desert Rose is home to about 24 girls who have lived a big part of their lives on the streets. Desert Rose is licensed by the government to provide shelter to girls from one to three years. The Desert Rose Shelter has been a ground-breaking project, the first of its kind in Mongolia, focusing on a smaller number of girls in order to break away from institutionalization and instead, create a family atmosphere for the girls. During that time Desert Rose works to find their families, bring transformation to the family with the help of partner organizations, and eventually reunite them back home if possible. The work of Desert Rose with these girls takes years but the results are overwhelmingly positive: proof that a rose can grow even in the desert!
