For many nations, a primary obstacle to achieving sustainable progress and stability is the deadly legacy of landmines, the relics of armed conflicts that often ended long ago. Landmines halt agricultural production, impede economic growth, slow the return of refugees, instill fear, and kill and maim innocent citizens on a daily basis, injuring or killing at least one person every 40 minutes. Therefore, MLI’s Mine Action programs provide landmine-affected countries with the resources & training they need to rid their soil of this horrific scourge and address their long-term impacts. Our Social Impact programs address many of the myriad other humanitarian issues facing countries recovering from war, such as poor economic opportunities for vulnerable women, lingering tensions between ethnic and religious groups, and a lack of educational and leadership development opportunities for youth.
All of MLI’s programs aim to restore dignity and enhance quality of life for people living in conflict-impacted countries; the focus is on building practical, affordable, and sustainable indigenous humanitarian programs.
Mine Action Programs
The deadly legacy of landmines remains long after wars are over. Mines and explosives pose a constant threat to stability and safety to people in mine-contaminated countries. MLI’s Mine Action Programs emphasize the importance of helping countries help themselves to overcome the physical, social, and economic burden of these hidden killers.
Social Impact Programs
MLI’s Social Impact Programs began as a way to assist communities in post-conflict countries live a more fulfilling life. They help to rebuild peace, promote leadership among youth, and put a strong emphasis on the empowerment of women and the improvement of their role in society.
