Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation

The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation was launched on December 14, 2012, and their primary goal is to save lives by preventing drowning.  Its mission is to create worldwide public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children swim while learning safety measures through their “Learn to Swim”, and “Water Safety” programs.

The Foundation is equally involved in communicating the values of sport, such as discipline, determination, respect for oneself and for others, and team work. The “Sport & Education” program is based on the belief that sport is a tool that highly contributes to the wellbeing and development of children, who will grow into conscientious adults.

Since the creation of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, more than 500,000 people, most of them children, have benefited from the three ongoing programs in 33 countries. Together we can help them reach even more people!
