Peace Corps Volunteer in Community Youth Development Tsetserleg, Arkhangai (Mongolia)
Hello! My name is Kara Estep and I am a Peace Corps Volunteer currently serving in Mongolia organizing a project to collect helmets for child jockeys to wear in Mongolian horse races. I was inspired by fellow Volunteer Alex Yang's helmet project in Sukhbaatar province and decided to replicate it here in the Arkhangai province where I live. AND one of my Mongolian colleagues actually brought up the idea without me even having mentioned it. How cool is that? Right now we have collected 89 helmets for this summer, but we still need a few more! Here I'd like to tell you a little bit about our project and how you can help...
What is the Mongolian Helmet Project?
How You Can Help
- Donate a new helmet.
- Donate a used helmet.
- Donate other protective riding gear.
- Hang up a flyer at your local equestrian goods store.
- Share this project with you local 4-H clubs and riding clubs.

Together we can help these children continue to participate in this century-old tradition without having to risk serious injuries or their life. Thank you for your time and consideration, I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!
