Create and share a poster bringing awareness to the landmine issue.

CHildren Against Mines Program (CHAMPS) Children Against Mines Program is a program designed for schoolchildren to learn about the human consequences of landmines and how people and dogs are working together to make a better and safer world. Students in the United States participate in meaningful activities that nurture leadership and peace building skills. CHAMPS participants connect virtually with children living in mine-threatened communities around the world and are empowered to become part of the solution for a mine-free world by restoring hope through their interactions. Since the inception of the program, children from around the United States have sponsored forty-six mine detection dogs working in seven different countries through student-led fundraisers and activities. In addition to sponsoring life-saving dogs, these children have also assisted more than eight hundred landmine survivors to receive prosthetic limbs, mobility aids and other medical assistance.
