Our Mission

The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) was founded by General Gordon R. Sullivan in 1997 in effort to extend the vision & legacy of Nobel Peace Laureate George C. Marshall. MLI’s mission is to locate, secure, and apply skills and resources to alleviate suffering, restore hope, and create conditions that nurture stability in countries affected by conflict.

MLI's humanitarian work would not be possible without the generous support of our donors. Since 1997, MLI has donated 282 mine detection dogs to sniff out landmines in war-town countries, supported over 1,800 landmine survivors with medical and vocational assistance, and provided mine risk education to around 163,600 people in mine impacted countries. It is thanks to charitable foundations, grants, the U.S. Government, and countless individual donors that MLI continues to follow our mission, alleviating suffering, restoring hope, and providing stability to war-torn countries year after year. 

Thank You!
