Svømme Projekt

WCAAF betyder We Care About African Football første gang vi var afsted sendte vi over 800 kilo fodboldtøj udstyr afsted til en lille Fodboldklub som hedder Royal Sportive, men WCAAF fandt ud af at mange at de unge fodboldspillere aldrig har lært at svømme og derfor vil WCAAF gøre en forskel og det er det man indsamler penge ind til så man kan komme ned og lære dem at svømme i samarbejde med Blue Fins Swim Club.

 

De afrikanske børn og unge skal lære og svømme og der er ikke ret mange der kan det og derfor vil WCAAF gøre en forskel og lære dem at svømme som er så vigtigt og kan være med til også at redde liv.

Man har i Danmark lige siden fra man fra lille kommet til svømmetræning og har med tiden lært noget så simpelt at svømme.

Men nu hjælper WCAAF de Afrikanske børn og unge ved vores næste rejse til Afrika i Ghana og skoler dem til at lære at svømme med uddannet svømmetræner. WCAAF samarbejder med Blue Fins Swim Club og deres team.
