HI implements emergency response and development projects, and builds on its core activities, including mine action, assistance to people with disabilities, inclusion, physical rehabilitation, and inclusive education. HI seeks innovative and sustainable solutions to better respond to actual needs and to support the socio-economic development of the most vulnerable people. For example, in the north of the country, HI has launched a large-scale Demining and Economic Development Project (PRODECO) in consortium with Mine Advisory Group (MAG), Secours catholique et développement (SECADEV) and the Fondation Suisse pour le déminage (FSD).
The ODYSSEE 2025 project has also enabled HI to build on its innovative approach to mine action through the use of drones, electronic tablets and new technologies in order to improve the responsiveness and relevance of its armed violence reduction actions.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, HI has continued to help the world’s most vulnerable people. We have adapted our interventions in more than 45 countries.
