In some mine-infested countries, schools and areas near school grounds have been mined, putting children’s lives in danger and depriving them of an education. The ultimate goal of this project is to help demine such school areas with funds raised by participants in the Schools Demining Schools project. Students are following demining teams in Mozambique and Afghanistan via an e-mail discussion. The transcript of the discussions appears on this web site along with additional country and background information. Check this page regularly for updates and letters.
