To achieve our mission, we offer:

  • Significantly discounted training services to registered non-profit organisations and community groups.
  • Free technical advice and training to non-profit and community groups working to reduce drowning in Vietnam.

We actively support registered INGO Hue Help’s Swimming for Safety programme by providing training equipment and qualified trainers.
