The Water for Life Club is a subdivision of the Aqua Initiative working towards raising awareness and funds for the World Water Crisis. A dedicated team of students who, throughout the year, organize several events and presentations manage and run the club. This unique activity provides students with the opportunity to not only learn leadership and organizational skills, but to also make a major global difference by contributing to the cause.
Since the establishment of the student run charitable group, the Aqua Initiative, Dubai International Academy has had the annual tradition of celebrating World Water Day. Usually held in March, World Water Day is an opportunity for students to appreciate the impact water has on our lives, and understand that there is a large percentage of the global population without such resources.
The entire event is organized by the students and usually hosts a presentation to the entire school about the issues related to the cause as well as bake sales and pizza sales followed by the Water for Life Carnival, which is a major charity carnival, held at the school with all the funds going towards providing clean water to communities around the world deprived of such necessities.
