Sreepur Village, Bangladesh

Swim Safe Programme

At present in Bangladesh the main cause of child mortality is child drowning. In the Shishu Polli Plus campus children have limited access to water bodies. When they will return to their community they will be exposed to water bodies which could be life threating. For the last four years SPP has been running a swim safe programme for children from 6 to 12 years old to prevent the children from drowning. Children who succeed, and receive a certificate, are able to swim 25 meters, float or tread water for 30 seconds and perform a dry land rescue.
