DIA Water for Life Club

The Water for Life Club is a student-run charitable organization that was founded in 2008 by DIA Alumni, Edward Pollock and Aman Ghose! It’s parent organization, the Aqua Initiative, is a recognized official charity. This academic year of 2017-2018 the club marks its milestone 10th team! Sign up as a member/ volunteer here.

Previous Years have all seen great successes! We believe every action towards the cause, irrespective of size, goes a long way in achieving our vision to tackle the Global Water Crisis.  Last year, the Water for Life club managed to generate a revenue of approximately 17,000Dhs!

The Annual World Water Day (22nd March) Assembly & Carnival are major events run by the club. Every year, Water for Life hosts an assembly to educate students about the Global Water Crisis, as well as the annual carnival (est. 2011) which is also hosted around this time! A traditional fundraising mufti-day allows students to dress in blue to show their support too. The carnival is a day packed with fun rides, delicious food and music, with all profits going towards a good cause! Students can unwind after a school day as they enjoy with their friends until sunset, and parents, family & friends are of course invited too!

The Club is completing 10 years, marking a very important milestone. We’d like to reflect on our club’s impact, as well as extend a sincere thank you to each and every student, ex-member, teacher, volunteer, supporter, & sponsor that has supported us in the past! From providing life straws & funding wells in mobile areas (through donations to the Aqua Initiative), to donating 7,000Dhs to the GIVE Foundation (2017), and empowering our students by educating them at assemblies; what’s in plan for this year? Get ready for an active year; we’ve got new events planned, ideas for awareness, we’re also looking at merged projects with other school clubs, and also expanding our team to the primary school too! Stay updated by following our facebook page!
