Glenelg Country School

The Marshall Legacy Institute and Glenelg Country School have developed an everlasting relationship in helping rid the world of landmines, as well as promote global citizenship among students. In 2008, Glenelg Country School partnered with MLI and launched the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS). This program through MLI helps promote 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: 1) provide valuable resources, especially mine detection dogs (MDDs), for landmine clearance; 2) educate citizens about the dangers of mines;  3) train national leaders charged with mine action responsibilities; and 4) assist landmine survivors with physical and psychological needs.  MLI provides resources and training to help countries build their own affordable, practical and sustainable humanitarian demining program.
