SURFERS NOT STREET CHILDREN
I AM WATER is proud to have partnered with Surfers not Street Children - Tom Hewitt and his team in Durban.
Thanks to Tom’s influence the kids from Umthombo Street Children are incredibly skilled surfers. Some program graduates have claimed regional and national attention on the competitive surfing circuit.
I AM WATER partnered with Tom to show his surfers the underwater wilderness just below their surfboards! Even though these kids have been in the water countless times they had never been snorkelling around the reef or seen the fish that live under the waves they surf.
Our Durban I AM WATER Team taught the kids the importance of our ocean ecosystems, the challenges our oceans are currently facing, and different ways to help with everyday actions.
