Take the challenge this March 2018 from the 19th to the 23rd and commit to doing ten thousand (10,000) steps a day for 5 days. To mark World Water Day, WaterAid invites you to walk in solidarity with those who have to walk long distances to collect water. Recruit your colleagues, classmates, friends, family, everyone, and SIGN UP to walk and raise money for people who walk too much. You can also make a donation.

The equivalent of 100 mins of walking or 8 kilometres, 10,000 steps can be tracked using a WaterAid pedometer which will be sent to every participant or corporate team who starts fundraising. This is a great activity to do with a larger community. If you'd like help getting your whole workplace or school community involved, contact WaterAid. Ask friends and family to sponsor you and all funds raised will help WaterAid reach people who have limited access to clean water sources.


It's the norm in some of the world's poorest communities for women and children to walk for hours just to collect water. The fact is, 263 million people worldwide spend over 30 mins per roundtrip to collect water from a safe source. Can you imagine having to endure a situation that sees primarily women and girls who are responsible for water collection in 8 out of 10 households that don't have access to water where they live?

For your venture to help those in need, make sure you let family, friends and colleagues know that you've signed up for Walk for Water. When the day arrives, give them an update to let them know your fundraising target, and that the challenge has begun. By involving those close to you or perhaps by making this a great fundraising gesture and letting everyone know; you're more likely to make a success of it for those who have to live in situations we can barely comprehend. Undertake this challenge in good spirits. Your sacrifice will help raise funds and awareness for the 650 million people who still lack access to safe water.
