Fifth graders at the International School at Dundee (ISD) stood up for their four-legged friends recently by meeting with CHAMPS (Children Against Mines Program) representatives — both human and canine — to learn about the danger of landmines, and how specially-trained dogs can help find and remove mines quickly and safely.

CHAMPS helps raise awareness and money to sponsor landmine dogs, which cost about $20,000 to buy, train and maintain. ISD students will raise funds for CHAMPS through activities, including a dog walk and a spelling bee.
