What is Walk4Water
To Develop Empathy
Walk4Water is an annual event organised by Time to Help to raise awareness of water scarcity. On average, women and girls in developing countries walk 6 kilometres (approximately 3.5 miles) a day, carrying 20 litres (about 42 pounds/20 kgs) of water. It is common for this journey to take more than 15 hours a week in some areas.
We will each challenge ourselves to carry 10 litres of water for 5.6 km to build empathy with those struggling to access clean d and safe water. We also want to raise funds to build new water wells. By building these wells we will provide easy access to clean and safe water to thousands of vulnerable people.
We will walk to make their journey shorter.
What is Walk 4 Water For Schools
Walk4Water for Schools offers a programme including various activities to encourage students to raise awareness of water scarcity and develop empathy for the vulnerable people in Africa.
We work in partnership with schools to integrate the significant environmental issue of Clean Water and Sanitation (United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals 2030, Goal 6) into their curriculum with a transformative format.
With the Walk4Water project, we aim to work with schools to bring positive change by creating awareness about water scarcity, educating the youth about water wastage, and raising funds to take action towards eliminating the lack of clean water and sanitation problem.
