Since 1998, the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation has addressed critical shortfalls in heavily mine-impacted countries across the globe. Each year we have built on our innovative work from the past, uncovering and addressing the challenges that hinder clearance efforts.From pioneering a solution to recycle unexploded ordnance in Cambodia to publishing a UXO awareness book for children, we take a comprehensive approach to solving the problem. As we continue to expand our resources and expertise, we are able to bring high impact solutions to an increasing number of communities living in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance.

Our Mission

Our mission is to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of men, women and children residing in areas contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordnance, through the development of innovative and practical materials and technologies designed to combat these life threatening munitions.We fulfil this mission guided by the core values of innovation, forethought, partnership, appropriateness, impact and affordability. Our vision is of a world one step closer to peace and prosperity where mankind lives in an environment free of explosive remnants of war.

From Ideas to Action

The Golden West Humanitarian Foundation is a United States based, non-profit charity dedicated to the development of innovative, appropriate technologies to overcome the operational limitations encountered by the humanitarian mine action community.With an abundance of combined experience in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), engineering, training, chemistry, and geo-physics, Golden West personnel are highly qualified to effectively improve the operational efficacy of the organizations working to rid the planet of the deadly Explosive Remnants of War (ERW).By working collaboratively with governments, the UN, National Mine Action Centers and NGOs, we address the needs of the mine action community and strive to ensure the widest dissemination and use of the innovative systems we develop in order to save lives.
