The 100 Women in Demining in Angola project seeks to boost mine clearance in the country. Under the project demining will re-start in Benguela Province - where it was halted due to lack of funds despite the 80 minefields in the province.
The project will start on 1 July 2017 - if we raise the funds. A government donor may fund half the costs, but HALO needs to raise $750,000 to match the donor contribution.
HALO will train and employ 100 women as deminers, medics, drivers and mechanics, and deploy them to clear high priority minefields. This will not only allow the villagers to safely use their land for agriculture, it will provide skills, income, status and empowerment to 100 women who would otherwise be in low-paid, informal employment or out of work.
