By building a pool of our own we will be able to more than double the amount of lessons we can provide for the community
– Adam Knight

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have placed a "secret gift" to a charity looking to build a swimming pool in Guinjata Bay, Mozambique which will help children learn how to swim

The Royals have given £4,350 to marine conservation charity Love the Oceans through the crowdfunding website Justgiving.com.

Made under the name “Archie HMW” – after their son – the donation has guaranteed the success of the £5,000 fundraising push.

According to swim coach Adam Knight – who has worked on the Mozambique project with Love the Oceans – said: "Drowning is a major issue in this part of the world – last year alone 12 adults and children lost their lives. This could easily have been avoided if they had the skills and knowledge which we can now provide.

"This year we will be flying out to Guinjata Bay, Mozambique to teach 200 children to swim, train eight new swim teaching assistants and one new swimming teacher.

"The biggest challenge out here is the venue. Currently we have to cram 40 children onto the back of a pickup truck, drive 45 minutes off road and use a local dive resorts' pool which is not always available.

"The success of the funding will mean that we can now build a pool of our own.

"It will result in us being able to more than double the amount of lessons we can provide for the community and create paying jobs for the swim teachers we have trained.

"Our ultimate goal is to make the swim programme a sustainable community-led initiative."
