Launched back in December 2012 by H.S.H. Princess Charlene de Monaco, the Foundation’s primary objective is to save lives by putting an end to drowning. Its mission is to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children to swim while learning safety measures through the “Learn to Swim”, and “Water Safety” programs. The Foundation is equally involved in communicating the values of sport such as discipline, respect for oneself and for others, determination and teamwork. The “Sport & Education” program is based on the belief that sport is a tool that contributes to the wellbeing and development of children.

And the new exhibition «Past to the Present» in the Art Gallery Show would be interesting to drop by. It brings together works by nine contemporary artists, mostly from the graffiti culture, to be discovered until June 8, at the Art Gallery Show in Monaco.
Another exhibition worth seeing is Exhibition by Latifa Echakhch in Nouveau Musée National – Villa Sauber, open from 10 am to 6 pm.
