“A movement empowering individuals to achieve their full potential and become positive role models within their community”
The source of inspiration for ‘Inspire4Justice’ all started when co-founders Savan Shah and Daniel Heimler discovered the art of breaking (i.e. breakdance) at the age of 17.
We initially set up a project called ‘Dance4Justice’ with the sole purpose of sharing our passion for dance to inspire other young people. However, in 2012, we decided that we wanted to "be the change you want to see in the world" which led us to organically setting up 'Inspire4Justice'. Other equally passionate individuals who shared a similar vision heard about the organisation and we joined forces to create an official board of members.
We believe dance has the power to empower an individual to achieve their full potential, support their community and be a tool for self-expression. We’ve learnt that dance can build up your self-confidence and make you realise if you can achieve in dance, the same mentality can be applied to other parts of your life.
Associated to Dance4Justice, we have a dance crew called Inspiral.
EPIC (Every Person Is Capable)
EPIC is an annual event hosted by Inspire4Justice which aims to empower young individuals, showcase talent and celebrate the coming together of people from different cultures, religions and backgrounds.It’s a mixture of performances by students, professionals and include talks by various individuals with a focus on personal development.
"Be the change you wish to see in the World" - Mahatma Gandhi
As a movement, our mission is to continue to spread positivty within the community and empower individuals to achieve their full potential.
Together we can make a differece.

Speakers4Justice give us a platform to deliver talks and workshops to individuals on a variety of topics. We believe that if we can connect and engage individuals on a personal level, we’re likely to increase their chances of success.
To date we’ve organised a selection of talks in high schools, peace festivals and universities.
Iam4Justice is divided into two parts:
1. It allows us to adapt our projects in line with one's individual passion (for example Music4Jusitce or Sports4Justice). These projects always maintain the aim to empower young people to achieve their full potential and become positive role models in society.
2. It gives us a platform to collaborate and organise events which support equal human rights.
