The Marshall Legacy Institute's (MLI) primary mission is to establish practical, affordable, and sustainable indigenous programs to help severely mine-affected countries rid their land of the horrific scourge of landmines.
This includes the development, expansion and sustainment of the Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program (MDDPP), which provides mine-detection dogs (MDDs) to accelerate the pace of landmine-clearance operations; the Survivors' Assistance program, which helps those who have been injured by landmines; and the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS), which promotes global citizenship and involves American youth in meaningful, service-learning projects to help children living in war-torn countries who have been injured by landmines. These three programs educate citizens about the dangers of mines; provide valuable resources, especially mine detection dogs (MDDs), for landmine clearance; train national leaders charged with mine action responsibilities; and assist landmine survivors with physical and psychological needs. MLI provides resources and training to help countries build their own affordable, practical, and sustainable humanitarian de-mining programs.
