We are proud to announce that the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa has sponsored Sea Rescue’s WaterWise Academy in Eden.H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco said, “ Some of my present and future projects for my Foundation are underlining the importance, and reinforcing the awareness, of water safety. We are all aware of horrible stories about small children drowning because they could not swim.”Growing up in Africa heightened Princess Charlene’s awareness of children, swimming lessons and water safety. The Foundation’s main vocation is to focus on the practice of sports, starting with swimming and rugby for children’s education and development.The Foundation supports children on an international scale, with water safety programmes that will very soon be implemented in different countries in the field to fight against drowning which has far too many victims each year.The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation has sponsored Liza Wigley, NSRI’s Wilderness based WaterWise Academy Instructor. Liza has been running the programme in Eden for two years and in 2014 taught over 30 000 children about basic water safety.The WaterWise Academy lesson, which is taught in the safety of a school classroom, includes how to avoid danger in or near water, how to rescue a peer, who to call for help and how to do bystander CPR.Princess Charlene
