Particularly in rural areas, traditional gender norms often prevent Sri Lankan women from accessing economic and recreational opportunities. Our free, all-female Swim & Surf Program creates a safe space for Sri Lankan women and girls to enjoy the ocean, gain vital water- and ocean-safety skills and build self-confidence; while influencing mindsets around gender norms. Long term, we seek to equip women with the skills needed to access specialized jobs within the thriving local surf tourism industry. To support our program, we sell ethically made, environmentally responsible products, handmade by Sri Lankan women for fair wages.
