Words From Volunteers

Deux jours après mon arrivée à Huanchaco, dans l’ONG Otra Cosa Network, j’ai rencontré ma future équipe de travail: Bryan & Quique (pour les intimes) avec qui j’allais donner des cours de natation à des enfants incroyables (et je ne pèse pas mes mots) ! Des enfants toujours motivés, qui veulent apprendre, remplis d’énergie et tellement attachants.

The children were so happy to see us each morning when we arrived to take them to the ocean (yes, the ocean). They were grateful that someone would give up their time to take them to the beach and teach them how to swim.

Fiona Weir (Scotland), Swimming Teacher

In Huanchaco, many of the children in the poorer areas come from migrant families, originally from the highlands, where not many people know how to swim. What SwimTayka is doing is amazing, and it really changes the children’s relationship to the ocean and boosts their self confidence!

¡Una experiencia fantástica y tan gratificante
