We teach the children a simple lesson that is easy to remember and we encourage participation so that it is fun to learn.The children loved the presentations and we were blown away by the positive response from the teachers.Over the next nine days we will teach almost 10 000 children in Jeffreys Bay, St Francis, Oyster Bay and Humansdorp!Drowning is one of the top five causes of accidental death in South Africa. Children are most vulnerable. The number of children who die from drowning each year would fill 10 school buses. Vuyo Zondani @ Mzingizi Primary - she is doing presentations from class to class.
