The Shaka Surf Club is extremely happy to announce that we are now partnering with an organisation called Project Swim International, in an effort to educate local communities in water safety, and prevent the number of drowning deaths in India.

We recently had a group of PSI volunteers – American Red Cross Lifeguards from Tuscon, Arizona – who visited us in Manipal, and trained us in Surf Rescue, First Aid and CPR. During their visit, we also conducted a Water Safety Education Program in a local college to a group of nearly 40 students, which was a big success!

We even got the opportunity to record a show about water safety on Manipal Radio 90.4 FM- a community radio station that broadcasts programs to smaller towns within 30 kms distance from Manipal!

Big Thanks to the Project Swim International team – Ben Schaub, Nicole Manuel, Jenna Lee Curtis and Kelsey Didier – for all your help! We are excited about taking your work forward in India 😀
