Learn to Swim - Bora Bora

In December 2019, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation launched its first Learn to Swim programme in French Polynesia, in collaboration with the Fédération Tahitienne de Natation (Tahitian Swimming Federation / FTN).
 
The Bora Open Water club organized learning sessions on Matira beach (island of Bora Bora): observation of the environment, swimming lessons, initiation to water rescue, first aid and drowning prevention workshops.

Under the leadership of Mrs. Stéphanie Geyer Barneix, lifesaving world champion in coastal and record woman of the longest paddle board crossing, 119 children aged 6 to 12 were able to benefit from the courses and were supervised by lifesaving international champions.
