Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)In Mayotte, few Mahorais know how to swim, including those who worl in the sea. Yet the first settlements of the island were made by sea ...
The island also has 10 times less sports facilities per inhabitant than the national average when compared to the population of under 20 years (there is only one swimming pool, that of Koropa, in Majicavo, of 15 mx 5m). “60% of the local population is under 20, making Mayotte the French department in which the development of sport in its educational and social cohesion dimensions is an urgent necessity”.
