In Angola, men have historically done land mine clearance, but the Halo Trust, a UK-based nongovernmental organization with demining programs in 17 countries, is trying something new: adding women to its demining effort. 

The aim is to diversify the NGO's ranks, boost mine clearance, teach job skills to more women and attract donors. The plan is to eventually have 100 women working as deminers, medics, drivers and mechanics in Angola. 

Meet 20 of the women training to clear minefields.
