Around Seychelles in 18 bays
A group of women, including members of Seychelles Women and Sports Association (SWASA) is organising a big event in June, for World Oceans Day to raise funds for charity. Besides being a charity event, the project will be raising awareness on the versatility of Sseychellois women, the oceans and Liam’s Rainbow Foundation.
The event will be shown live on national television and it promises to be the most exciting live TV program ever produced locally. Its outreach will be massive and thus provides an excellent opportunity to showcase talented Seychellois women especially those working in marine conservation.
The whole-day event will comprise of an all-female crew and participants. These will include some of the country’s most influential women as well as those that have excelled in the maritime and conservation fields.
During the event the group of Seychelles’ most influential women and those that have excelled in their respective fields (sports, music, conservation, PSs, CEO’s etc..) will sail around 18 bays of the country to celebrate World Oceans Day in June.
The three main objectives of the event are:
- To raise funds for Liam’s Rainbow Foundation (it supports sick children). This will be done through donation through a bank account and through a ‘teleton’.
- To raise awareness on marine related issues (conservation, fisheries etc..)
- To show the amazing capabilities of Seychellois women (the crew will be an all-female crew. Thus demonstrating that Seychellois women are capable in all fields, even the ones dominated by men.
The female team will set sail, very early in the morning, the proposed route is from the Capital on the main island and then on to the other inner islands. This route will cover 18 bays in over 10 islands and will show viewers the beauty of the Seychelles’ islands and seascape.
The journey will be live on TV and throughout the day there will be TV programs in between live coverages about marine conservation, fisheries, illness in children, Liam’s rainbow foundation, profiles on the participants. The media will constantly prompt people to donate to Liam’s foundation.
As planned, this event promises to be the most ground-breaking TV show, showing influential and talented Seychellois women in a very interesting setting. Along the journey there will be various things happening on the catamaran, such as performances by various female artists, fishing by female fishers, dancing, splash in the ocean and other very interesting undertakings by the participants.
