Salsa4water is a student-run volunteer project that teaches salsa dancing classes to raise money for the charity Wateraid.
Dance4Water (previously known as Salsa4Water) is a student-run volunteer project that teaches salsa dancing classes to raise money for the charity Wateraid. Everyday, 1400 children around the world die from waterborne infections, as result of inadequate sanitation and dirty drinking water. Our aim is to put a stop to this, via the formation of 4water societies all over the world providing affordable services to their peers, whereby they exchange a skill they have, such as salsa dancing or a language, for students donating their money to this cause we believe so strongly in. With only £15 required to get clean water and sanitation for 1 individual, we have been blessed with the power to change and maybe even save peoples’ lives. After being founded by a group of students from Glasgow University, the work done by dance4water and it’s surrounding projects has been down to an incredibly enthusiastic, hard working, motivated and warm-hearted group of individuals. Our aim is to continue to raise money for Water-Aid, while having fun and instigating social responsibility among the student population.
