Company Description

About The HALO Trust:

The HALO Trust is the world’s largest and oldest international humanitarian mine action non-government organisation (NGO). Our mission is to lead the effort to save lives and restore livelihoods for those affected by conflict. HALO is known for its work to clear landmines but is very much involved in the disposal of other explosive hazards such as bombs, rockets, missiles, and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). HALO was established in Afghanistan in 1988 and now employs over 9,500 staff in 26 countries and territories.

The HALO Trust helps countries recover from conflict. We believe that by clearing landmines and other explosives left behind by war, and promoting responsible arms control, we can protect lives and contribute to building resilient and prosperous communities.

WHAT WE DO

Clearing landmines and improvised explosive devices remains at the heart of what we do. We also deal with unexploded ordnance from bullets and grenades to aircraft bombs, and educate communities to keep them safe. In addition, we create safe weapons and small arms storage systems. As the nature of conflict changes, with more fighting in towns and cities and climate­driven displacement of people, we are changing our priorities toward the new threats.

Our organizational goals are:

Protect lives from the explosive threats and hazards resulting from conflict

Reduce human suffering from armed violence

Build resilient and prosperous communities
