The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is committed to building a world where children from all backgrounds can thrive in a safe environment and learn to live together.

The Foundation saves lives by fighting against drowning and develops the education of children through the values of sport.  

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), drowning is a major public health concern. Drowning caused 2.5 million deaths over the last decade and is one of the main causes of death among children in many countries.

Since its creation on December 14, 2012, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation supports and funds educational projects worldwide via 3 programmes.

To protect children from avoidable injuries and to prevent drowning, the Learn to Swim and Water Safety programmes provide theoretical and practical training to children and adults and raise public awareness of water hazards.

To inspire future generations and contribute to the well-being of children, the Sport & Education programme organises sports events and encourages everyone to take up a sport.

In implementing its actions and projects, the Foundation assists local institutions, relies on the technical expertise of partners, and cooperates with international organisations that share its vision and its goals.
