Mines Advisory Group America

Overview

MAG (Mines Advisory Group) is one of the world's leading humanitarian organizations providing conflict-affected countries with a real chance for a better future. MAG and MAG America work together to clear landmines and other remnants of conflict from some of the world's poorest nations, to educate and employ local people, and to help provide solutions for those trapped by poverty and economic devastation through no fault of their own.

Mission

MAG America believes that conflict-affected people have the right to build peaceful and prosperous futures, free from the impact of the remnants of conflict. It is our mission raise awareness and mobilize support for clearance and education programs that enable communities to escape the poverty and suffering caused by conflict.

Program

MAG implements its life-saving solutions in ten conflict-affected countries around the world. Our conflict recovery programs use a variety of methods to remove threat of poverty and economic devastation. We clear landmines, unexploded ordnance (UXO), and other harmful weapons that pose a danger to the lives and livelihoods of local communities. We provide mine risk education and awareness programs that improve the safety of those most at risk. We train and employ local staff and work in collaboration with national and international partners to respond to a country’s development needs. Most importantly, MAG works closely with affected men, women, and children - finding out what their priorities are and developing a response that best helps them to rebuild their lives after conflict. The success of MAG’s programs isn't measured by the number of dangerous items cleared, but by the positive impact they have on the lives and futures of conflict-affected communities.

Impact

Landmines and UXO restrict people's access to education and healthcare facilities, as well as to clean, safe water and land for cultivation. They hinder links between villages and restrict local trade. Other remnants of conflict, such as small arms and light weapons present a constant risk to the life and health of local populations and can threaten the fragile transition from conflict to peace. By removing these obstructions to lasting peace development, MAG creates a safe environment in which people can return to their homes and begin rebuilding their lives after conflict.
