Most refugee children arrive in the United States and have not had an opportunity to learn how to swim. This winter we were approached by an amazing local swim instructor who offered to donate her time to teach refugee kids to swim. She started with 4 girls from Eritrea, ages 13-16. She picked them up and took them to the pool once a week for 12 weeks. Over the course of those 3 months, the girls went from being afraid to put their head under water, to swimming the length of the pool. They became confident and competent swimmers. Once word got out, kids have been begging to be next for swim lessons with Kyle. She is now on to her third group of kids. We want to help her sustain this effort by helping to pay for pool usage and equipment. Please make a donation to Soft Landing Missoula by cash, check or online at https://softlandingmissoula.org/donate. Leave us a note online after you have completed your donation or send us an email at [email protected] to let us know this is a donation for swim lessons. Any funds raised over the $250 will go to support our other youth programming. Thank you for your support!
