Aicha, 10, lives in Guinea Bissau. Since HI has helped her to attend school, she has become a lively and joyful member of her local community. HI ensures that over 70,000 vulnerable children and children with disabilities can access their right to an education.
HI has completed its demining operations in the Tshopo, Ituri, Bas-Uele and Haut-Uele provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), launched in January 2016. Over a two-year period, HI and its local partner, AFRILAM (Africa for Anti-Mine Action) cleared 34,520 m2 of land of mines, the equivalent of 5 football pitches, benefiting the 5,600 inhabitants in the region.
