FINA

Objectives

FINA in recent years has contributed to the development of aquatic facilities throughout the world.

Nevertheless, we are still a long way from having suitable facilities everywhere, even in the most developed counties. FINA has a social responsibility to promote swimming and encourage governments to provide access to facilities for children to learn to swim and enjoy water. One of the core principles of Pools For All is to build aquatic facilities that cater to the needs of the community. Pools For All aims to guarantee that any investment in facilities is well spent and gives value for money.

Pools For All guarantees them an efficient investment. Because one of the intentions of Pools For All is, precisely, to avoid the appearance of new white elephants.
