Did you know there’s around 2,000 landmine accidents a month in around 60 countries and that 20 percent of the 300,000 landmine amputees around the world are children? So what’s the connection then between land mines and workplace team building exercises in Australia? A new project has been launched called “Helping Hands" and in your workplace you can build prosthetic hands for victims of landmines. Annie Gaffney spoke with Matt Henricks, an organisational psychologist, and started by asking him how this project came about in Australia.
