MISSION STATEMENT OFTHE FOUNDATION WORLD WITHOUT MINES
We are a Swiss foundation whose two main objectives lie in clearing abandoned explosive warfare materials and in education. We support non-political and non-religious organisations, institutions and projects in this area around the world.
- We support small, manageable and easily controllable projects to restore places of culture and habitation.
- Our focus is on forgotten mine fields in former regions of war.
- Our approach is citizen centred, sustainable, cost efficient, technologically appropriate and oriented towards development.
Implementing cooperative objectives:
- We work together with noted institutions and experts on location.
- Project management: we evaluate, document and finance suitable projects and monitor them continuously. Public relations: we inform public authorities, the media and the general public about the situation in mined areas.
- Procurement of means: we carry out targeted fund raising for planned projects.
- Donor care: we inform our donors about our work at regular intervals.
