2014: The first step up «swimming laos program»

Lao primary school

Basic swimming formation.

In march 2014 for the first time in Lao history, two Lao schools came to a swimming pool during school time. It was a very strong sign of improvement against drowning danger. During 10 hours (1 hour per week during 10 weeks) these students learned basic swimming skills.

At the end of the trainning 90% of our students succed the test without any help:


10 meters on their back

10 meters on their stomac

2 meters in immersion


They now able to swim in case of an accident,so that they can reach the border and to get safety.


Add list we made a closing ceremony during which we gave to everyone who participated on a t-shirt in symbol of their training achievement.
