Swim Vietnam and Aquatic Training School – Swim Vietnam
One of Water Skills for Life's key projects seeks to reduce the number of deaths in Vietnam caused by drowning. Ministry of Health reports that 16 people drown every day in Vietnam, a rate ten times that of developed countries. Although this number is shocking, the World Health Organisation reports that this is a conservative estimate. Drowning is the leading cause of death by injury for children in Vietnam.
With your support we are able to provide financial and educational assistance to increase the number of qualified swim instructors to teach swimming and water safety skills in Vietnam. We achieve this by partnering with Swim Vietnam and Aquatic Training School-Swim Vietnam. We also help establish swimming pools, provide swimming equipment and business and administration support for both organisations.
We have established a program that we fund called “Swim Stars”. This program is for children with a disability and we work closely with Swim Vietnam and Aquatic Training school swim teachers and staff to provide this opportunity. There are three NGO’s (Non Government Organisations) that currently participate in the program. These organisations , all based in Hoi An, are: KIANH Foundation, CHIA (Children’s Hope in Action) and Hearing and Beyond
