BACKGROUND ON SWIM VIETNAM
Did you know that drowning is the leading cause of death in children over the age of one in Vietnam? Vietnam Ministry of Health statistics state that at least 10 children drown here every day. Some international aid agency surveys estimate that a more accurate number is over 30 child drownings per day!
Swim Vietnam is a charity which provides free swimming and water safety lessons to Vietnamese children. They also provide courses to train Vietnamese as swim teachers who are then employed by Swim Vietnam to ensure a growing sustainable program.
