Nanga Mai (to dream in Gadigal language) about a desired future!

1.      Why have you signed up for walk for water? I am from a third world nation. Equity of basic human rights is the reason I studied engineering. Every day when I get up and go to work, it’s an opportunity to learn more because, the third world needs my skills and every other support I can give them. I am determined not to be the only person from the developing world to be lucky. I am determined to contribute in this way because, I live with the hope that one day people from the developing world, will not have to leave their countries to be as lucky as me, i.e., living in a nation with necessities so easily accessible. 

 

2.      What would a better water world mean for you? – A better world means a world where the developing world, marginalised communities, women, and girls can thrive like every other person on the planet, without the unnecessary burdens of lack of basics. A world where limitations in relation from bias do not stop them from reaching their full potential. For women both in developing and developed worlds, I dream of a time when it is normal to be empowered to thrive when you have your period. I want women to feel they are trained to perform at their peak despite the hormonal impacts. I dream of a world where egg freezing is subsidised. A world where I am not counting the years and worried that I might have to sacrifice my corporate goals during my prime, because I need to figure out how to have a baby before biology take that privilege away from me.  

Yananurala (Gadigal word for walking on country)

This year I thoroughly enjoyed being Aurecon's Walk for Water champion. 

Leading our business to work together towards a common goal (raising 20k for WaterAid), was quite remarkable.

Across the nation we hosted joint walks.

In Sydney, the highlight was how we merged first nation's history and language together with water inequality statistics, as we walked through Lavendar Bay.

At various stops, we also shared examples of how WaterAid improves lives.  

Why I'm walking, running & riding for water this October!

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 cause them to miss time at school. And not only that, sometimes the water they are forced to collect is dirty, carrying water borne diseases and leading to sickness in their community.

This is why we need your help – we are asking you to walk for water, so that they don’t have to.

By walking, running or riding for five days, you can raise awareness and funds so people around the world can access clean water for the first time.

Please donate to my fundraising page to contribute to WaterAid's amazing work. For just $40, WaterAid could buy pipe to provide a rural community with clean water.

The more people that know about WaterAid, the more we can achieve together.

Please spread the word by sharing my fundraising page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
