The Aqua-Smart Foundation is a nonprofit organization, which focuses on creating greater access for individuals of all ages and abilities, to safe, quality aquatic programs throughout Trinidad & Tobago and the region.


Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under the age of 5 and is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide. For each fatal drowning incident, five more children receive emergency care for submersion injuries. These are all preventable.


The Aqua-Smart Foundation believes that through active learning opportunities, based on quality aquatic programs, persons can be empowered with essential information, education and practical water safety skills, while experiencing the joys of swimming; through this simple but effective process, the incidence of drowning can be substantially reduced.
