WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE?

Here are a few reasons

Sentinel Ocean Alliance is a registered Public Benefit Organisation with Section 18A tax exempt status. 

We can issue tax receipts for donations with which you can claim a tax deduction. 

Our work supports 5 of the United Nations Development Goals

We are working tirelessly to inform and empower children and adults, communities and schools about the fragility of our oceans, the threats they are facing and how they can change their behaviour to be part of the solution.

We are committed to reaching as many children as possible with our swimming programme to try and reduce their risk of drowning, and to teach important life skills. 

Our programmes create jobs for the local community and provide skills and training to the local youth as professional lifeguards and swimming coaches.
