STA UK, the founding member of IFSTA, is supporting Douglas Okatso from Juja in Kenya, who has launched an amazing initiative aimed at teaching children vital lifesaving skills—including drowning prevention.
With one key objective at the heart of this initiative, Douglas told STA UK of his aim:
These children are our future generation and we want to have the largest number of people who can swim and save lives in the coming future.
Douglas is starting his project at Gachororo Primary School, where he is going to begin building a community of future lifesavers; teaching children vital knowledge and transferable water safety and lifesaving skills.
To help, STA UK has donated money to help with pool hire and supplied STA awards for all the children who will benefit from the project over the next three years.
STA UK will be following Douglas’ progress closely and will continue to support such vital projects like this for years to come in line with its charitable objectives.
