The group strives to raise awareness on various issues affecting women of every race, religion, class, and sexual orientation. In doing so, the group hopes to create a supportive, inclusive, diverse, multilingual and multicultural space, dedicated to the empowerment and unity.

    Women Entrepreneurs Mentors Club and Quality Life NGOs

    Women Entrepreneur Mentors Club


    WEMC aims to provide guidance and assistance to women startups, micro and small entities and to connect women entrepreneurs with other entrepreneurs creating long term networking opportunities and promoting cooperation among members to accelerate entrepreneurship through ecosystem of mentorship. Most importantly, WEMC prioritizes inclusivity for those who do not have the access to resources, opportunities for mentorship, and access to information to uplift their businesses' long-term stability in the market of Mongolia were more than 60% of the market is concentrated in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Thus, expansion of geographically spread networking, mentorship and collaboration is tremendously in need for a long-term impact for advancing women entrepreneurs.

    Quality Life NGO


    After reaching the age of retirement, senior citizens often find themselves with little opportunity to maintain active and social lifestyles. A 2015 survey of over 420 elderly citizens in Ulaanbaatar revealed a dire need in Mongolia for senior social and medical care. To fulfill this demand, Proliance LLC has founded one of Mongolia’s first senior recreation providers: Quality Life NGO. This non-profit organization is currently operating senior center, Quality Life Club, at its government donated facilities in Chingeltei district of Ulaanbaatar. Quality Life Club provides seniors with the opportunity to engage with peers, their community, and exercise their bodies and minds. Many of the elders that attend this organization are retirees of demanding professions, including doctors, lawyers, and teachers, all of whom desire occasion to utilize their intellectual abilities.

    East-West Center Innovation Lab

    EWC Labs are small teams engaged in dynamic interactions and using an experimental, prototyping approach instead of a rigid, planning based approach to innovation. In these Labs, alumni connect and apply theory learned in their past EWC training, incoming fellows develop experience to ground their learning at EWC, while potential future fellows increase their interest in EWC.
