Today (8th of August) Mongolia marks Father’s Day. The Mongolian Men’s Association initiated the day in 2005 with an intention raising awareness on the social role and family responsibilities of fathers.
Under the slogan ‘Support to Fathers’ Participation’, Annual Father’s Day is being celebrated by the Ulaanbaatar Family and Child Development Division in cooperation with the Mongolian Men’s Association.
Several activities including contests among fathers, a seminar on father-child relations and workshops have been held across the country.
Mongolia became the 14th country to mark Father’s Day which is now observed in about 20 countries around the world.
