The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a Virginia-based non-profit organization committed to helping war-torn countries help themselves. Our current focus is eliminating the humanitarian dangers and the destabilizing effects of landmines. MLI assists war-torn countries in building humanitarian, sustainable and affordable programs to eradicate landmines and alleviate the suffering caused by these instruments of war. To date, MLI has assisted 13 severely mine-contaminated countries by donating more than 200 privately sponsored lifesaving dogs to sniff out mines. Programs also include robust Survivors' Assistance projects that provide medical assistance and vocational training to victims of landmines, as well as Mine Risk Education classes that are given to tens of thousands living in mine-affected countries. Through the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS), MLI engages tens of thousands of American youth in the landmine problem so that they can get involved and help others.
