Drowning is the 3rd cause of death worldwide for children aged 5 to 14. More than 90% of these drowning deaths occur in low and middle income countries. There are no broad efforts to prevent drowning. Yet prevention is easy: teach children to swim! The Swim Foundation's mission is to teach as many children as possible to swim - in the most effective way possible. By teaching local swim teachers.

About 
the Swim Foundation

The Swim Foundation conducts intensive teach-the-local swimteacher courses worldwide for local community members to become official Swim Foundation teachers. In return they will be able to teach children basic swimming skills -for the rest of their lives! Preventing thousands of drownings. It is our ambition to do that in the most effective and sustainable way.
