Waves for Change helps take vulnerable and lesser-privileged children from underresourced communities in South Africa into the ocean through the medium of surf therapy. With the guidance and support from mentors and the power of Mother Nature, the children learn how to cope with stress, regulate their behavior, and make positive life choices.
