Khulan Munkh-Erdene has been working as an Advocacy and Communications Manager at Save the Children Mongolia since 2016. As a mother of three, Khulan is passionate about protecting children and helping them to fulfill their potential in everyday life. Since public relations is basically an art of building relationships, she deals with a wide array of partners, collaborators and stakeholders. Research and analysis of social protection issues, very often linked with economic and social aspects, are an important part of her job and how she designs sustainable solutions to actual problems. Khulan assists parents to achieve positive discipline approaches in everyday parenting. Amongst many other qualifications, she holds bronze and silver course certificates in “Steps to Protect,” a common approach of Save the Children.

Khulan is a communications and advocacy professional with 12 years of experience in the non-profit world. In her Bachelor’s degree she majored in French and Russian. Additionally, she holds a Master’s degree in Strategic Public Relations from the University of Sydney, which enabled Khulan to work in the international arena and gain intercultural-communication and team building skills. Before joining Save the Children Mongolia, Khulan worked at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) for eight years as a Communications Manager, leading the organization’s communications, marketing, education and public awareness efforts.

Khulan proudly volunteers for good causes. The latest project in which she was engaged helped to protect young children from hazardous air pollution in the most polluted area of Ulaanbaatar city. Khulan enjoys traveling and experience great pride from Mongolia’s pristine landscapes, untouched nature and charismatic animals.
