Save the Children (USA) began its Landmine Education Project in Kabul, Afghanistan, in April 1996 with support from several donors, including Radda Barnen. In 1995, the United Nations Mine Clearance Program completed its survey of Kabul concluding that the capital city was in the midst of a landmine crisis. In response to this declaration and the apparent lack of child-focused methodologies employed in existing mine awareness programs, Save the Children developed a participatory curriculum based on principles of non-formal education.
