The Foundation of Your Serene Highness Princess Charlène of Monaco
Monte-Carlo Fashion Week, which firmly believes in social responsibility, is pleased to support the Foundation of Her Serene Highness Princess Charlène of Monaco (www.fondationprincessecharlene.mc) for the second year running. The Princess Charlène Foundation of Monaco, established on 14 December 2012, has set itself the primary goal of saving lives by fighting drowning.
Their task is to raise public awareness of the dangers of water, educate children about prevention measures and teach them how to swim. The Foundation's actions are also based on the values of sport such as discipline, respect for oneself and others, a desire for performance and team spirit. The "Sport & Education" programme, which is based on the values of sport, uses sports activities as a tool to contribute to the well-being and development of children.
