Learn to Swim

The construction of a rescue center in Burkina Faso

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is currently partnering with the Red Cross of Monaco and the Red Cross of Burkina Faso whose aim is to transform and implant the Monegasque Pavilion at the Milan World Expo in Burkina Faso.

During the course of 2018 the project will become a centre to train professionals most notably in hospitality.  It will also be a first aid and CPR training centre which will focus on countries in the West African region.
The Foundation will also create an aquatic rescue centre which will train lifeguards and swim instructors.
A Water Safety programme will be put in place to raise awareness about the risks related to water and a Learn to Swim programme will also be developed for 1,000 students from the neighbouring high school
And lastly, the four-time freediving world record holder Pierre Frolla, Director of the Monaco Lifesaving Center (Centre de Sauvetage Aquatique de Monaco – C.S.A.M.) and Ambassador to the Foundation, will bring his expertise and know-how to deliver this project to its fruition.
