Why Walk?

Because 1.1 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean water. In Burkina Faso alone, 3.4 million people don’t have access to clean water! And only 19% of the country has access to a sanitation facility. Over 20,000 children under 5 die each year in Burkina Faso from water related diseases! The average sub-Sahara African walks up to five miles a day to get to water clean or not. The good news about these statistics is we have the power to change this! What can we do to change this?

We can Walk for Water! It is about walking in the shoes of sub-Sahara Africans for one day, raising money, and building awareness to end this epidemic! Walkers will raise or contribute a minimum of $100 to participate. Then, walk 2.5 miles to get a 5-gallon jug of water and carry it back 2.5 miles.

The walk for water that used to take everyone here three hours, now takes 15 minutes. And the water is safe to drink.

You use the extra time to tend to your home and children. You spend time making extra income to help feed your family.

Your kids spend more time in school instead of walking for water. They become teachers, doctors and lawyers.

Surrounding communities learn how water changed your village. They get connected and the cycle starts again.

Water is an astonishingly complex and subtle force in an economy. It is the single constraint on the expansion of every city, and bankers and corporate executives have cited it as the only natural limit to economic growth.
