771 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water close to home. Every day, women and children walk long distances to collect and carry water for their families. Girls and boys often begin collecting water as children and girls continue to collect and carry water throughout their lives. Many girls spend hours each day collecting water, which can leave them with less time to go to school.
This is why we need your help – we are asking you to walk for water, so that they don’t have to. All you need to do is walk, run or ride for five days during 10 – 14 October and ask for support from your colleagues, family and friends.
Walk for Water is a great way to engage with fellow employees and your networks. Come together as a team to raise awareness and funds for people around the world to access clean water for the first time.
