Currently, Nile Swimmers works in Sudan in partnership with various different organisations. Each of our drowning prevention programmes has a different strategic partner to help with the focused delivery.
Aquatic Survival Programme – School Children
The Aquatic Survival Programme in Sudan has been building momentum, and after a successful pilot delivery into 20 schools with the Ministry of Education, we are planning to ramp up this programme significantly to target children in high risk communities. So far, we have trained over 250,000 children.
Key Funder: Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation
Strategic Partner: Khartoum Ministry of Education
Aquatic Survival Programme – Vulnerable Communities
This pioneering programme started in September 2015, with a targeted delivery of Aquatic Survival training into the refugee camps located near Kosti in White Nile State. These camps contain thousands of refugees from South Sudan who have little else to do except to go to the river.
Key Funder: UNICEF
