CLEAN envisions a world where every person has access to sustainable clean water and sanitation. Thousands of lives are saved and the potential of individuals around the world who are sick or stuck in the endless cycle of fetching water each day have the opportunity to follow their dreams and reach their own potential. CLEAN works with local communities to find solutions that are wanted, sustainable and effective. Community leadership committees are formed, sustainable technologies that can be built and implemented locally are identified, measures to protect water and the environment are implemented, and permanent tools for evaluation, assistance and feedback are put into place. CLEAN’s vision is an end to the daily walk for water worldwide and the eradication of waterborne illness.
Adan De La Torre, Dance Instructor
Adan took up salsa dancing in 2007, but it was in 2010 that salsa dancing became therapy to relieve his issues with depression. Local dance instructor and friend Jesse “Chuy” Rodriguez encouraged Adan to teach. Adan subsequently formed a dance group which allowed him to begin performing at the Oxnard Salsa Festival Community Dance Showcase. Adan joined the Limon Y Sal restaurant family in 2017, which required a break from instructing, but he is thrilled to be a part of the Oxnard Salsa Festival once again this year as a Dancing with Our Community Stars instructor!
