The Aquatic Survival Programme is an initiative that commenced in 2015 as part of the 5-year strategic plan of Nile Swimmers. The project aims to raise awareness about water safety and have every schoolchild in Sudan, around the River Nile Valley familiar with key water safety advice.
Swim Generation has donated funds to support Nile Swimmers and help reach more children in local communities. This work will be carried out between July and December 2017 with primary and secondary schools, aiming to reduce drowning incidents that involve children aged between 5 and 18 years old. Water safety messages are also extended to the wider community to ensure that the programme reaches as many people as possible.
