Water safety in schools

Our  Instructors around the country teach over 300 000 children each year.  We teach them how to be safe around water, what to do in an emergency, what number to call for help and we demonstrate very basic hands-on CPR.

You can make a difference in the lives of these children by sponsoring a lesson or an Instructor.

Vlakteplaas Primary in De Rust, where temperatures reach over 40 degrees, appreciated the visit by WaterWise as learners enjoy swimming in the farm dams.

We need your help:
600 children die by drowning each year.  That means 10 buses full od school children.  We need to reach more children to teach them how to keep safe. Our current challenge is to source funding for more Instructors.
