With over 400,000 drownings worldwide each year, Swim India aims to reduce the number of drowning fatalities, specifically in monsoon prone South Asia, by educating local communities in water safety, basic swimming skills, first aid and CPR. Programs are led by knowledgeable volunteers who learn global responsibility by working in diverse, cross-cultural environments.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Last year, we sent 13 volunteers to the Indian states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Those volunteers led a water safety education program, which teaches children how to be safe around water, basic rescue skills, and CPR. In total, we taught 2,062 children in five distinct Indian cities: Chennai, Mamallapuram, Madurai, Ernakulam, and Kozhikode. This year, we will operate two trips to South Asia: Nepal in August, and South/East India at the end of December. We plan to send a total of 40 volunteers. We will continue to teach the water safety education program in Arizona and South Asia with a goal of reaching 6,000 children. We will also begin a swimming lesson program in parts of India where children will be taught survival swimming skills. We have plans for financial stability this year, too. We are beginning a scholarship/fee waiver program that will allow one volunteer each year to travel to India for free. We also hope to hire part-time staff this year and find consistent funding for this necessary organization.
