Teaching The Life Skills Of Swimming And Water Stewardship
We provide free swimming lessons and environmental education about clean water stewardship to underprivileged children who live along the earth’s open waters: rivers, lakes and oceans.
Drowning is a silent epidemic that claims an estimated 360,000 lives every year, many of them children. Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide. These are wasted lives and preventable deaths.
SwimTayka Is Here To Work With At-Risk Communities To:
Educate children about the care of their open water and how to preserve it for generations to come.
Teach children how to swim, a life skill which could save their life.
How Does SwimTayka Work?
SwimTayka connects organisations in poor waterside communities with volunteer swimming instructors and environmental advocators from around the world, to develop and promote free swimming and environmental lessons for children. Volunteer programmes run from two weeks up to two months and include instruction in basic water safety, swimming, first aid and environmental education.
