Marshall Legacy Institute
Restore hope, alleviate suffering and nurture stability in war-torn countries—these are the goals of the Marshall Legacy Institute.
The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a Virginia-based, non-profit organization founded in the 50th Anniversary Year of the Marshall Plan to extend the vision of Nobel Peace Laureate George C. Marshall to address 21st Century problems.
The current focus of MLI is assisting nations in establishing affordable and sustainable programs to rid their land of the scourge of landmines. MLI works to restore hope, alleviate suffering and nurture stability in war-torn countries. MLIs two major programs are the K9 Demining Corps Campaign (K9DC) and the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS).
In ten short years, MLI has provided resources and training to over a dozen severely mine contaminated countries and has helped to alleviate suffering and restore hope for millions of people affected daily by landmines.
This year MLI reached a major milestone in providing its 101st and 102nd lifesaving dog to ‘sniffout’ landmines in the neediest of countries. Incorporated in March 1997 for charitable, education and humanitarian purposes, MLI is a tax-exempt organization under IRS Code 501(c)(3).
