Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are safe and well. We want to reach out with a little update on how things stand regarding our programmes in light of Coronavirus restrictions.

We are gutted that we have had to postpone our projects until travel restrictions are lifted but we know it is the right thing to do.

However, we would be more devastated if we were complicit in transmitting the virus to vulnerable people in vulnerable communities.

As soon as our world gets a clean bill of health from the Coronavirus, we will resume our projects up again for our amazing volunteers to participate in.

What we do

SwimTayka helps 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


Get Involved

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.
