Helping to Find A Better Way

Our Story

Find A Better Way

Find A Better Way was founded in 2011 by England and Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton. While visiting a minefield in Cambodia, Sir Bobby saw first-hand the humanitarian damage which landmines cause in war torn areas both past and present.

Sir Bobby Charlton’s visit to Cambodia moved him to set up Find A Better Way as he felt that, with modern technological advances, there had to be a more efficient way of negating the effects of mines and improving safety and security for local communities whose lives are blighted by them.

With a significant amount of funding already committed to a portfolio of nine research projects at leading UK universities, Find A Better Way acts as a major funding body for vital, groundbreaking technological research into improving the tools available for the safe removal of landmines and explosive remnants of war. We are committed to cultivating the necessary cross-disciplinary collaboration necessary to find innovative, technology-led solutions, which will ultimately save countless lives.

Recognising the need to mitigate the impact of landmines on the lives of communities already affected, Find A Better Way also commits significant funding to partners to undertake risk reduction education programmes using innovative pictorial techniques.

In addition to these vital research and education programmes, Find a Better Way provides much-needed humanitarian assistance in landmine afflicted areas. Still underlined by our firm belief in the power of cutting-edge technological developments, we work to develop affordable prostheses and to train a cohort of trauma surgeons in state-of-the-art amputation techniques.

We need your support to fulfill these goals. You can help Find A Better Way to save lives and work to help the millions of people living with the threat of landmines around the world by simply donating to our cause or getting involved with Friends of Find A Better Way.
