Luanda International School

Luanda International School pupils

A visit from a MAG representative in 2006 led to Luanda International School adopting the issue of landmines, in a partnership with MAG, as one of its main community and service projects.

After three decades of conflict, parts of Angola are amongst the most landmine-affected areas in the world.

Luanda International School's Mine Awareness Week

LIS, situated in the capital city of Luanda, supports MAG's life-saving work in the country. Year Seven students, aged 11 and 12, started the ball rolling with the production of a film highlighting the problems of landmines in Angola.

And, every October, the school holds its annual Mine Awareness Week in which all classes discuss the issues surrounding landmines.

In 2007, the school organised a poster competition, in which all the children designed their own mines awareness poster.

Fundraising on behalf of MAG is also an annual activity on the school calendar. Every year it holds a charity golf tournament, from which all proceeds are donated directly to MAG Angola.

Through its partnership with MAG, the issue of landmines has become one of their main community and service projects.
