PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD DIE FROM DROWNING EACH YEAR
Drowning kills. You can change that.
Did you know that globally, drowning kills as many as 1 out of every 4 children, after infancy. Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of accidental death worldwide, but 59% of countries don’t report drowning deaths, so the real death toll is much higher.
Our goal is simple, with your help we can empower communities and build programs that change lives and save lives
How we help
We raise awareness about drowning. #ItCouldHappenToYou
We fund programs that prevent drowning - swimming lessons, survival swimming, lifeguard training, CPR training, and more.
We are a member of the Chicago Water Safety Task Force, drafting the first major city Water Safety Plan.
100% of your donations on our site will fund scholarships for African women to attend the 2019 World Conference on Drowning Prevention, until June 30. Africa has the highest rate of drowning globally and women make a difference in their communities.
We provide new parents with life-saving resources. Contact us to use the cards in your community.
