Viva con Agua hosts campaigns to empower children to create WASH messages through dance and art. The Dance4WASH project is a school dance competition to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene in schools. The winning school of the Dance4WASH competition will receive a bathroom makeover.

WASH stands for water, sanitation and hygiene, and through these projects, Viva con Agua builds toilets and rehabilitates sanitation infrastructure for schools. This includes tanks, gutters, and drainage for school bathrooms. The intent behind these projects is to teach learners’ about the importance of hygiene and sanitation. It is important to enrich their health by creating a safe and clean learning environment.
Viva con Agua is a community of people and organisations committed to providing access to clean drinking water and basic sanitary care for all South Africans. This is accomplished by motivating individuals and organisations to get involved in the process of positive societal change. The organisation’s mission is to teach people about the global issue of water in a creative and enthusiastic way.
South Africa remains in a water crisis, so Viva con Agua works to improve the usage of water within communities. About 771 million people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water. More or less 489 million of them lack access to any drinking water infrastructure. Viva con Agua’s aim is to lessen this amount as much as possible.
In order to do this, the non-profit organisation raises funds through joyful activities, which flow into WASH projects in an increasing number of Viva con Agua countries. Each project is aimed to improve living conditions of others. Viva con Agua uses the funds raised from these activities to build ground level wells, toilet facilities, and hand washing facilities.
