Impact report 2020-2021!

We are excited to share the Surfpop impact report 2020-2021 with you. A period wherein we were able to grow our program, while navigating and providing support during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are proud of the impact that we have achieved! All children enjoy being part of Surfpop. The children significantly improved their emotional well-being and resilience since joining Surfpop with an improved future outlook, access to a safe space and new coping skills. They performed well in school with a 100 percent pass rate. As surfers, the children improved their physical health and enjoyed playing their part in caring for the environment.

Surfpop also created real future opportunities for its first three graduates in the form of jobs and bursaries. As role models our graduates inspire others within Surfpop to dream big: “Surfpop teaches us to be courageous in the ocean and in our dreams for the future” and “now my child knows that her dreams can come true so she keeps on dreaming.”
