What we do

SwimTayka sends qualified instructors into poor communities around the world to:

  1. Educate children about the care of their open water and to preserve them for generations to come
  2. Teach children how to swim, with the ultimate goal of saving lives

Teaching the local people to swim and educating them in water preservation opens doors
to future jobs for them such as lifesaving and swimming instruction.

Who can apply for the programme?

The swimming expertise of our volunteers and their passion for the world’s open water are what makes SwimTayka stand apart. Although our core programme aims to connect passionate swimmers with poor communities who need swimming teachers, we always need back office staff to promote SwimTayka.
