CALM joined the U.S. State Department Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (PM/WRA), Public-Private Partnership Program to promote humanitarian mine action. Over 60 organizations from all over the world participate in the Partnership Program.

CALM is a member of the USCBL (United States Campaign to Ban Landmines), a coalition of approximately 500 U.S.-based human rights, humanitarian, faith-based, children's, peace, disability, veterans', medical, development, academic, and environmental organizations. USCBL calls for a total ban on antipersonnel landmines and a prohibition on the use, production, and transfer of cluster munitions that cause unacceptable harm to civilians

CALM has partnered with "Mekelle Ortho-Physiotherapy Center (MOPC)" in Ethiopia to provide assistance for child landmine survivors in the region. Following the signing of an Operational Agreement with MOPC on June 03, 2008, CALM launched Project TG to help two child landmine survivors from "Tahtay Maychew" and "TahtayAditabo" districts in Tigray region (Northern Ethiopia).
