Caribbean Coaching kick starts the Marchand Swim Programme
The project offers free swimming lessons to children from local communities
St. Lucia is a beautiful island surrounded by clear blue sea however many of its inhabitants are unable to swim and drownings are not uncommon, particularly within the island’s underprivileged communities.
Our seven-week Marchand swim programme is designed to give the opportunity for young children from disadvantaged backgrounds to learn basic swimming techniques in open water. The sessions are being run by our volunteers throughout the day, with groups of 8 at a time. We are providing transportation for all participants to make sure anyone who wishes to take part can.
