Mission Statement

Our mission is to lead the effort to protect lives and restore livelihoods threatened by landmines and the debris of war.

Description

The HALO Trust clears landmines and unexploded ordnance from war-torn countries so that some of the world’s most vulnerable people can plant their crops, rebuild their homes and raise their families in safety. Founded in 1988, we are the world’s oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization. We have a simple mission, 'getting mines out of the ground, now,' and as leaders in the mine action community we have cleared over 13 million landmines and other explosive remnants of war--more than any other organization. With thousands of locally recruited staff, we invest in local leadership, keeping the mine-affected communities integral to the process and providing employment in areas where there are few opportunities. HALO is at the forefront of development, as our work not only saves lives but is a prerequisite to any post-conflict reconstruction.
