Plongeurs du Monde (Divers of the World) was created, after the TSUNAMI drama of December 2004, to assist the populations touched by the disaster, more particularly the population making a living from fishing. Thus, in partnership with Green Hope, an association working to school the children of the village of Hikkaduwa (Sri Lanka) we decided to help finance a fishing vessel and restore to some fishermen and their families the tool necessary for a livelihood.
Today the actions of Plongeurs du Monde are orientated its activities towards training young people coming from poor backgrounds.
Our purpose is to give the technical means to these young people (training in sub-aquatic activities) so that they can obtain a professional qualification enabling them to work in the diving industry such as a PADI Divemaster.
Our actions also emphasize training about marine environmental protection. A good diver cannot de trained and effective without being fully aware of the fragile nature of this (our) environment...
