Angelina Jolie, known for her aggressive anti-landmine efforts, is in Scotland where she took her oldest kids to learn a little bit about mommy's charity work in this area.
Angelina and children Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh hit the HALO Trust in Dumfriesshire, Scotland. There, the Jolie-Pitt clan caught up with charity staff where the Brangelina brood learned about how to help "remove landmines and scattered debris from war zones across the world."
That being said, Angelina Jolie -- a current goodwill ambassador of UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) -- reportedly said about her visit to the headquarters of this particular charity, "In the aftermath of war, HALO's mine-clearing efforts are fundamental to a safe return and community building."
Meanwhile, HALO co-founder and director Guy Willoughby explained to a source that Angelina Jolie "felt it was important for them to learn about land mines in a safe setting...We spent half an hour showing her four older kids what the land mine issues were and what they looked like."
After that, the Jolie-Pitt children went off with Willoughby's kids "to muck around.. at [my] farm."
So, while work and play co-mingled to occupy these high-profile children, Angelina Jolie was able to impart some valuable anti-landmine lessons without having to put anyone in danger while doing so. What a commendable way to get a difficult concept through to your kids at such an early age.
That said, what do you think of Angelina Jolie's schooling methods? Do you think she got through to her kids by taking them to HALO headquarters in Scotland? Do you think this unique effort had merit? Thoughts? Thanks.
