At present in Bangladesh the main cause of child mortality is child drowning. In the Shisshu Polli Plus campus children have limited access to water bodies. When they will return to their community they will be exposed to water bodies which could be life treating. For the last four years SPP has been running a Swim Safe programmee for children from 6 to 12 years old to prevent the children from drowning. Children who succeed, and receive a certificate, are able to swim 25 metres, float or tread water for 30 seconds and perform a dry land rescue.
