    Zoggs Support Love the Oceans - Teaching Swimming in Mozambique

    Love the Oceans is a non-profit marine conservation organisation working in Inhambane, Mozambique. Although, their main mission is to establish a marine protected area in the province of Inhambane they also have several side projects. One of these side projects includes working at local schools teaching the young students about the ocean and all the wonders it holds. Every week the five students that have shown the most enthusiasm are offered Saturday afternoon swimming lessons. With the help of Zoggs, Love The Oceans has begun its latest endeavour; here's their progress so far...
