We are excited to announce that Julie Veloo was today awarded with the "Silk Road" Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the socio-economic development of Mongolia. The Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry selected more than a dozen local and foreign companies, ambassadors and individuals who they felt had helped to promote the development of Mongolia. We are honoured to have been included in this most dignified of lists.
The afternoon was full of glittering pomp and ceremony including lovely cultural performances and rituals representing Tsagaan Sar. It certainly is an excellent way for us here at the Veloo Foundation to start the Year of the Monkey.
The highlight was the moment when our little Scholarship student rushed onto the stage with a beautiful bouquet and a hug to congratulate Julie.
It was particularly nice to find that one of our co-honorees was Wagner Asia for the Best CSR of any company in Mongolia. It's lovely to be able to celebrate this great recognition with such a great corporate partner and we are honoured to be part of their CSR programme.
Hello, my name is Julie and I am the Vice-President of the Veloo Foundation. Welcome to the Blog, where I will post new activities and events going on with the foundation. Enjoy!
