The camaraderie, the confidence and the sense of well-being we witnessed, both in and out of the water, was overwhelming. What we’ve come to realise is that Splash doesn’t simply teach people to swim; instead, we are a community beyond swimming that is a lifeline and home away from home for many. We like to call it the ‘Splash Ripple Effect’. Here’s how it goes:
In low income communities, more people can’t swim and therefore more people drown. We remove the fear that many have about water and we replace it with knowledge and skill. We make communities safer because we teach people how to be water safe.
Learning to swim builds confidence at any age and helps people discover their capabilities and potential. It is also good for the body and mind and promotes well-being and improved self-esteem.
We create a welcoming and supportive environment for marginalised communities. Splash brings people together, building bonds and giving our participants a sense of belonging.
