Walking for water so children don't have to
On average children in Zambia need to walk a distance of 5km in order to reach the closest source of water. Typically, adults attend work so children must walk for water, however girls are disproportionately affected. Young women and girls are forced to drop out of school to collect water for their entire family, resulting in a gender-education gap.
In October 2022 we walked/ ran 5 km in aid of our Wishing Well Campaign
We appreciate everyone who participated in our 5km walk/run fundraising event
On average each well supports 500 people. Your donation supports hundreds of lives and helps children continue their education.
A special thanks to Devon Jarovi who saw our last blog post and helped us reach our fundraising goal of exactly $3,000 so we could build a second well in Zambia.
At our 2022 #Step4Water in-person event
With your support we have been able to build 2 water wells in Shibuyunji District, Zambia
