Princess Charlene was at Larvotto Beach on Monday morning, together with fifty schoolchildren and a number of teachers.
The day was part of the Princess’s ongoing crusade against the dangers of drowning, and the former Olympic swimmer was personally engaged in teaching the children how to prevent aquatic accidents in Monaco.
“I am passionate about saving lives and it is so important to teach our young people essential water safety skills, especially at this time of year as everyone heads to the beach for the summer,” Princess Charlene told Monaco Life. “I am very grateful to all the athletes and volunteers who gave up their time to put together such an excellent day of activities.”
“We are very fortunate to have the Centre de Sauvetage Aquatique de Monaco here at Larvotto which is run with such commitment by Pierre Frolla and I am very excited that through last week’s Riviera Water Bike Challenge we will be able to establish a similar aquatic rescue centre in Burkina Faso.”
The day-long event consisted of several hands-on workshops, including rescue techniques for people in trouble in the water.
Princess Charlene continues to be very active worldwide in fighting the dangers of drowning, reported to be the third leading cause of accidental death with 360,000 incidents annually. The highest drowning rates are amongst children under the age of five.
