International projects

I dont want to be a princess that sits on the sidelines, I want to be present and actively involved. Its a life with a purpose.”

HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco

The Foundation is an international organisation and has projects running throughout the world. We have offices in Monaco, South Africa and America.

International collaboration enables us to access additional, often specific, expertise, gain new perspectives, and build relationships with others. Drowning is a worldwide pandemic, therefore, the Foundation will continue to work and expand our reach and programmes.

We have recognized the positive impact our programs have had in South Africa. In 2025 we are excited to expand our 3 initiatives / projects into Africa:

  1. Enhance Water Safety and Reduce Drowning Incidents
  2. Promote Physical Health and Well-being
  3. Foster Community Development and Social Cohesion

We will be focusing on the following African countries: Cameroon, Lesotho, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Ghana, Botswana, and Swaziland.
