    Water Smart Tots, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to decreasing pediatric drowning.

    They work towards their mission by providing water safety education and scholarships for survival swimming skills to children ages 12 months to 6 years who are financially underprivileged.
    Kari Bahour founded Water Smart Tots, Inc. after Mother's Day weekend in 2014 when there were four pediatric drownings in a single weekend in the Tampa Bay Area. She wanted to give back to her community, and believed that every child deserves the opportunity to learn survival swimming skills regardless of financial hardship.
    Since 2015, they have provided 245 children survival swim scholarships valued at over $60,000. They have also given water safety education presentations to over 2,200 preschoolers-2nd graders at no cost to their school.
