SunSmart

SunSmart Programme

Our SunSmart programme is a school and summer camp based programme. Our programme aims to increase the awareness of our youth about the importance of practicing SunSmart behaviors while outdoors. We also seek to influence individuals who are responsible for protecting others such as parents, teachers, friends and other family members with SunSmart behaviors.

Our ultimate goal is to prevent the dangerous outcomes of sun exposure such as premature aging, skin leathering and skin cancer. We strive to reach this goal by educating our youth and the community through our program. Studies show that most of the skin's damage occurs before the age of eighteen; it is vital, therefore that children in particular develop SunSmart habits early in life.
