Angola: Journey Through Change, an exhibition by MAG’s award-winning photojournalist Sean Sutton, is currently showing in the country’s capital at Luanda International School.
Some of the photos on display at Luanda International School.
The images, which also feature in a book of the same name (available to buy on Amazon here), vividly illustrate the work of MAG in Angola, from clearing and disposing of mines and unexploded ordnance, to teaching local people how to live more safely in dangerous areas.

By removing the physical threat of injury and death, providing education programmes, and returning safe land and infrastructure, MAG helps communities to live their lives free from the suffering caused by the remnants of conflict.
The exhibition, which runs till December 1st at a new wing of the school, will be visited by students and parents.
LIS supports MAG's operations in Angola, recognising that humanitarian organisations have a key role to play in facilitating the safe return of refugees and in contributing towards Angola's socio-economic reconstruction.
Every October, the school holds its annual Mine Awareness Week in which
all classes, from primary up to secondary, discuss the issues
surrounding landmines. Fundraising on behalf of MAG is also an annual activity on the school
calendar. Each year it holds a charity golf tournament, from which all
proceeds are donated directly to MAG Angola.
