Swimming for all!

installation: August 2016 ongoing

It all started when we took the girls to the beach.  And they wanted to swim like the boys.  But they didn't have appropriate swimwear.  So we wrote to the award winning modest Islamic swimwear company called Modestly Active for some help.  They kindly donated enough swimwear for 60 girls to learn to swim. Every month Safari English Club has an outing and the children generally end up on a beach somewhere around the island. The local hotel in Menai Bay is building a swimming pool and we're hoping to swap beach clean ups for time in their pool for swimming lessons.
