What will you do for water?




Get others involved

Walk for Water is so much more fun when you are part of a team. So get your work mates, family and friends together to join you on the journey.

Get sponsors

Ask your work mates and friends to sponsor you as you Walk for Water. Funds raised will help WaterAid reach people who have limited access to clean water sources.

Where the funds go

The funds you raise through Walk for Water help WaterAid reach people all over the world with clean water.

785 million people in the world – one in ten – do not have clean water close to home. For hundreds of millions of people, especially women and girls, that means long, dangerous and physically painful walks to collect water from sources that could be filthy.

WaterAid is committed to helping communities gain access to clean water sources close to home, enabling women and girls to spend more of their time going to school, seeking employment, looking after children, and engaging in leisure activities.

Who will you nominate to Walk for Water?

Every day, millions of women walk great distances to collect water, and sometimes the water is not safe at all. The walk itself isn’t always safe. Walk for Water is a simple but powerful way that you, your colleagues, friends and family can help reduce this burden for so many women and girls worldwide. You can walk with us and change women’s lives.
