About

The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a non-profit organization located in Arlington, VA. MLI’s mission is to help war-torn countries recover from conflict by promoting hope, growth, and stability. Mines and explosives pose a constant threat to stability and safety to people in many war-torn countries, and so MLI has focused our efforts over the past 20 years on mine action and social impact programs to address the myriad needs faced by communities affected by conflict. Within our Mine Action Programs, we have emphasized our Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program (MDDPP), which seeks to improve the quantity and quality of Mine Detection Dogs (MDDs) worldwide; the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS), which fosters global citizenship and engages American youth & foreign students in the landmine issue; and the Survivors’ Assistance Program, which provides medical assistance & vocational training to mine survivors, especially women and children. 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.

MLI has a long and successful track record of implementing our programs in over 13 mine-contaminated countries since our founding in 1997. Please visit our website for more details about our work around the world: www.marshall-legacy.org.
