Help culturally diverse women learn how to swim!

Donation protected
Hello, my name is Ennia – I am the founder of A Splash of Colour Swimming Program based in Newcastle, NSW.

'A Splash of Colour Swimming’ is a community focussed, inclusive and culturally sensitive 12-week program empowering women from diverse backgrounds to learn to swim with skill and confidence.

Swimming is an inherent part of Australian culture. It provides a great and healthy opportunity to be socially inclusive and it positively contributes to general wellness, health and fitness.

For some women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, learning how to swim is a challenge due to the cost of private swimming lessons, the cost of modest swimwear, unchecked water-related trauma, hair and skin management and complex cultural and historical generational barriers related to swimming.

But as we all know - learning to swim is not a luxury. It is a life skill because you never know when you will need it.

Our holistic program will include online workshops to help women successfully manage body confidence, access modest swimwear (if required), learn self-calming strategies and do something powerful for them!

Your financial support will help to:
  • subsidise swimming lessons
  • secure swimming accessories such as large swimming caps for participants with voluminous hair
  • secure modest swimming costumes (for those who require them for cultural and religious reasons)
  • provide childcare/creche option so working mothers/carers can attend swimming lessons

Our goal of $7,500 will help 40 women learn how to swim and impact their families and generations.

I hope you will join us in our quest to help women from diverse backgrounds do something brave and learn to swim.

Thank you.
