Completing Summer Swim Courses

With the completion of Summer, Swim for Life has seen over 1000 children in Qaung Binh, Vietnam achieve a level of safe swimming practices.

Working with collaboration of the Provincial Education Department of Quang Binh, Swim for Life worked with teachers across Qung Ninh to improve their swim teaching delivery. The selected 12 teachers were able to discuss the highlights of their programs while receiving technical advice on how to better implement swim programs. The Quang Ninh District Education representative said how the ‘High level of student interest shows an enthusiastic approach to lowering the drowning toll. The need is to keep these students in the program for the whole period. This is where we are thankful to Golden West Swim for Life for the continued support and resource sharing.’    

Swim for Life will continue over the remainder of the year to promote safe swimming practices. Working with the different levels across the Department of Education in Quang Biknh, to ensure that all school pools are properly managed with number of student and teacher ratios. That all students have access to learn swimming skills despite their gender, ethnicity, parent income level, and school location.

Survival swimming skills such as survival breaststroke and backstroke as well as sculling and treading water are taught to children aged 6-14. Rescue skills include calling for help, understanding the safety steps to be around water, reach and throw rescues are important life skills these youngsters are exposed to. Without your committed support, Swim for Life cannot continue to achieve these essential targets. We thank you for your interest and enjoy sharing our successes with you.
