The Importance of Water Safety
Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14. Research shows risk of drowning can be reduced by 88 percent if children participate in formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1-4.
Over 4 Billion People Do Not Know How To Swim
Since my early childhood, I developed a great passion for the water. The freedom and enjoyment we experience as swimmers is often hard to describe. The feeling of weightlessness in the water is something we often take for granted, but it’s one of the many joys the sport of swimming offers humanity.
My swimming experience has empowered me to help others achieve their goals and enhance their aquatic journey. If you’re interested in supporting our CSR project SO MORE CAN SWIM, please reach out to me directly at harshad@TheBeachCompany.in
