Why do a Splash Project?
(There are many reasons, but these are the main ones!)
- Corporate Social Responsibility – Central to every Splash Project is the idea that charitable organisations must benefit and that participants must take initiative. Many companies are keen to help local communities and charities. Splash Projects facilitates Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) whilst helping their staff develop.
- Experiential Learning – Learning is best achieved when it is directly experienced. A Splash Projects takes participants outside traditional academic settings to help visualise their strengths and acknowledge weaknesses. By doing something unfamiliar, invariably, mistakes are made and unforeseen circumstances must be accommodated, but each challenge is viewed as a learning moment. Taking ownership of a project, and especially one that is tangible and meaningful, is what cements learnings from Splash into experience relevant to the workplace.
- Sustainable Development – We incorporate sustainable development into our challenges, our designs and the way we operate. Many of our project directly support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (many of our projects support multiple goals) and we are keen to encourage others to do likewise. The goals we support the most often are SDG3 – Good Health & Wellbeing, SDG 4 – Quality Education and SDG10 – Reduced Inequalities, and SDG17 – Partnerships for the Goals.
In addition to CSR, Experiential Learning and Sustainable Development, a Splash Projects provides world-class opportunities for team building, reconnecting staff and leadership and talent development for all our participants. See below for more details.
