Challenge

In Cambodia, a country crisscrossed by rivers, canals and rice paddies drowning is a leading cause of death for all children; it occurs in early and later childhood and affects both boys and girls. It is a leading cause of death in children after infancy (1- 17 years). An average of 5 children die from drowning every day in Cambodia. Ninety-five percent of children over the age 4 who died from drowning in Cambodia could not swim and had no or limited knowledge of water safety.

Solution

Helpcode will teach 5.000 Cambodian children about water safety, safe rescue skills and how to swim. Helpcode will provide mothers with the knowledge and skills to keep their toddlers and pre-schoolers safe from drowning. Helpcode will begin work with the Ministry of Health and Education to achieve Improved Monsoonal Flood Risk Management, as well as Improved water safety in and around home environments. The inclusion of a Water Safety Program as part of the National Education Curriculum.

Long-Term Impact

Community awareness of drowning risk is increased and communities are equipped with the knowledge and skills to prevent drowning and are able to act on this knowledge and skill effectively. They will recognize potentially dangerous situations in and around water and be capable of taking action to reduce drowning risk. We will create water safey and supportive community and home environments to prevent drowning. Ultimately, communities will be competently able to perform water safety rescues.
