Non-profit organisation APOPO has trained the African giant pouched rat to sniff out minefields and other explosives in Africa and Asia. In Cambodia, it has partnered with the Cambodian Mine Action Centre to clear hundreds of minefields, and also opened a Visitor’s Centre in Siem Reap.
Visit the centre to see how the rats are trained and how millions of landmines continue to impact Cambodia’s local communities.

Our Better World - Telling Stories. Inspiring Action.
We tell stories of people doing good in Asia to inspire global action.
We connect storytellers, the people doing good and the ones who’d love to help but don’t know how.
We strive to build an engaged global community sharing skills, resources, time and effort, empowering every person with the conviction that each has the power to make the world better.
Our Better World is a digital storytelling initiative of the Singapore International Foundation.
