The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is a charity staffed by volunteers who are on call, at all hours, every day of the year. The goal of NSRI is to prevent drowning through education, through preventative measures and through rescue.
The support by the AVI Community Trust for the period has fund 19 000 children from disadvantaged communities to participate in the School Drowning Prevention program. The School Drowning Prevention Programme aims to educate children specifically in recognising and reacting appropriately to the threat posed by open bodies of water to avoid drowning and to assist in helping those in a potential life threatening situation. The course is a proactive approach to ensuring a child, adolescent and adult are at lower risk of drowning should they accidentally and unexpectedly find themselves in a dangerous situation in water.
