The World's Largest Swim Lesson

Stop Drowning Now supports the great effort of the annual World's Largest Swim Lesson. The WLSL event serves as a platform to help the global aquatics industry work together to build awareness about the fundamental importance of teaching children to swim to prevent drowning. Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for U.S. children ages 1-14. Research shows risk of drowning can be reduced by 88% if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4. Yet, a survey conducted by the American Red Cross in 2014 found that more than half of Americans (54 percent) either can't swim or don't have all of the basic swimming skills.

Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation

Launched on 14 December 2012, the primary objective of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is to save lives by putting an end to drowning. Its missions are to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children preventive measures and teach them to swim. When a drowning is non-fatal, often the victim is left with severe aftereffects, in particular neurological. A number of "Learn to Swim" and "Water Safety" programmes have been implemented around the world in order to fight against this scourge. The Foundation's actions are also based on the values of sport such as discipline, self-respect and respect for others, determination and team spirit. The "Sport and Education" programme uses sporting activities as tools to contribute to the well-being and development for all children no matter their origin or circumstances. Since the Foundation's creation more than 500,000 people, mainly children, benefited from these three programmes in 33 countries. The Foundation supported the development of Stop Drowning Now's Water Safety Curriculum.
