Approximately 372,000 people die from drowning each year –over half of them are young people under the age of 25.
By the end of our week we had all picked a project and had spent time developing a budget, identifying funders and supporters giving us the guidance to take action on achieving our goals.
With the friends and connections we’ve made at the workshop I know we are now stronger through collaboration in pursuing our goal of zero drownings in the commonwealth.
I look forward with great excitement to see the progress of everyones projects when we reunite in South Africa for the next World Conference on Drowning Prevention in 2019.
