After the great success of the 2020 #strongtogether campaign, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa is proud to announce the launch of their theme for 2021 – #educate2gether.
The announcement of this year’s theme aligns perfectly with the Foundation’s ambitious vision for the year ahead, as we have recently appointed a new board of directors and official ambassadors for 2021, namely Terence Parkin and Percy Montgomery. Unlike prior years, #educate2gether will run for the entire year with different initiatives under the same theme.
#educate2gether is more than just a vision; it is an action. And the Foundation’s goal with the new theme is to reach 2 million children by the end of the financial year.
Her Serene Highness, Princess Charlene of Monaco, who is involved with various organisations worldwide and is the co-patron of The Giving Organisation Trust and ambassador of the Federation International Automobile, implemented the “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes around the world through her foundation. These programmes are aimed in particular at disadvantaged children who are at risk of drowning due to their environment.
Our Foundation aims to educate the public about the dangers of water and drowning, teaching children preventative measures to decrease water-related mortality, and teaching people how to swim.
The Foundation has such a wonderful line-up of initiatives planned for the year. These include empowering our ambassadors and affiliates to continue making a difference in their communities, creating volunteer programmes to clean the environment around our pools, rivers, and oceans, repairing and revitalising derelict state swimming pools and bringing sponsored swimming lessons to the underprivileged.
Corporates and members of the public can help further the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation South Africa’s vision through their ongoing support. By donating to the Foundation, supporters will be rewarded with recognition and tax benefits.
But that’s not all. Every quarter, donors will automatically be entered to win a private meet-up with one of our celebrity ambassadors. And at the end of each fiscal year, one lucky donor stands a chance to meet Princess Charlene herself! The draws will occur at the end of May, August, and November 2021 and February 2022.
The first initiative with the Foundation’s long-standing partner, LifeSaving South Africa, will see 400,000 children across 4,300 schools in South Africa getting access to Princess Charlene’s Living Water programme.
Lifesaving South Africa is an internationally renowned lifesaving organisation. The essential service provides excellent standards of leadership and lifeguard training whilst encouraging innovation, development and first-class service delivery.
Our Foundation’s Efforts
The “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes have been implemented around the world. These programmes are aimed in particular at children who are disadvantaged or at risk of drowning due to their environment. The Foundation’s actions are also based on the values of sport such as discipline and team spirit. The “Sport & Education” programme is based on sports activities in order to contribute to the well-being and development of children.
Since the creation of the Princess Charlene Foundation in 2012, more than 730,000 people, particularly children, have benefited from these three programmes in 34 countries.
Thank you in advance for supporting our Foundation. We look forward to honouring and acknowledging your contribution as we aim to reach 2m children, expand into Africa, improve our environment and facilities, and teach underprivileged kids to swim.
