Mine Action Programs
The Humpty Dumpty Institute is among the nation's premier frontline organizations in the battle against the international landmine epidemic. HDI establishes unique and innovative partnerships to fund landmine clearance projects around the globe. In 2004, HDI pioneered a new model for funding mine action by monetizing surplus U.S. food commodities and applying the proceeds toward the mutually reinforcing goals of demining and agricultural development. Through these partnerships, HDI has directly contributed nearly $10 million for landmine clearance programs in Angola, Armenia, Laos, Lebanon, Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, and Myanmar.
In addition, HDI's founders created the Adopt-A-Minefield Program in 1998 which has raised an additional $20 million over the past decade. HDI's various projects around the world all share a fundamental goal: to give direct and indirect victims of landmines a chance to return home, lead normal lives, find gainful employment, support their families and be productive members of society.
