About Get Grenada Swimming

Grenada is an island country in the Caribbean about 100 miles north of Venezuela.

Like other Caribbean countries many National Grenadians, children and adults, cannot swim (estimated at over 80%) resulting in unfortunate drownings.

The Get Grenada Swimming is a 5-year program designed to teach 8,000 children to swim by 2021. As of April 2021 we have reached that goal. We will continue with our programmes and continue to add more. 

The programme has three strategic parts:




Free Lessons
