On holiday to Vietnam in 2006, Tanya reaiised the urgent need for swim teachers, training and information. She came back to Australia and formed Water Skills for Life – an organisation dedicated to teach a skill for life, to save a life. Tanya believes that anyone living near water, be it coastal or inland waterways, deserves to be taught how to swim.
Tanya will be assisting the Swim Vietnam organisation in preparing training courses for trainee swim instructors, conducting swim lessons, advising on best practice for swim centers as well as providing assistance with government organistions, running presentations and seminars to help spread the importance of learning to swim.
Tanya said “she was extremely honoured to be given the opportunity to help out the Vietnamese people, to reduce the amount of drownings in the Vietnamese community and to help them learn how to teach swimming, so that they can continue to pass on the skills to future generations.”
Tanya will be located in Hoi An and will be there for a year.
