Our Mission


The Cambodia Landmine Museum serves to educate the public on the dangers of landmines, through the story of Aki Ra, a child soldier who became a CNN Hero.  The museum believes that landmine use wil only begin when we all demand its cessation.  That can only be done through determination and education.


  • To tell the story of landmines in Cambodia through the perspective of Aki Ra, our founder, who was conscripted into the Khmer Rouge Army as a child soldier, and spent his youth fighting in the wars that ravaged his country for nearly 35 years. Landmines impact the country‚Äôs past, present, and future.
  • To show the world that, no matter who you are, whatever your background, your education, you can make a difference.
  • To support Landmine risk education for Cambodia’s youth, as well as our our sister NGOs.
