For us that person was a high school girl attending Heritage High School in Virginia who asked “if they walk for water why can’t we?” We are currently working extremely hard on making this years walk safe, as well as unique , so please stay tuned on how you can help us make this year one of our best 🤍 ...

In the midst of a pandemic it is important to remember that our planet had experienced plenty before we showed up. Just like the earth, people were experiencing struggle before this pandemic and therefore it is important to understand that most people can’t focus on trying to remain safe because they need to walk for hours for water. Walking for water works hard to spread awareness through our media to educate people about how important water is.

As of 2018 about 263 million children and youth are out of school worldwide which means in Sub-Saharan Africa 1 in every 3 children do not receive an education. This needs to change. So far we have supported 4,174 students in Sub-Saharan Africa and we want to keep the number growing. Go to the link in our bio to educate a child for the holidays.

In Kenya, tragically many families deny or ignore the existence of the virus. This is because many family’s must work tirelessly every day to provide food and water for their families, and if they are forced into quarantine they will starve to death. This is why must keep fighting for places like Kenya to have what we take for granted. To us it’s an option to them it is a necessity.

VIRTUAL WALK 2020

THIS YEAR WE VENTURED INTO OUR FIRST VIRTUAL WALK AND HAD A GREAT TIME. WE ARE EXCITED TO EXPLORE WAYS TO EXPAND AND FIND OTHER WAYS TO ENGAGE OUR KIDS AND COMMUNITY. WE ARE LEAVING UP THE RECORDING OF THE EVENT IN CASE YOU MISSED IT.

AS A SIDE NOTE – THE FIRST 15 MINUTES IS JUST A LEAD INTO THE EVENT. BUT WE KEPT IT IN THE REPLAY BECAUSE IN THE BACKGROUND IS A RECORDING WE MADE IN 2006 IN SOBONFU’S VILLAGE IN BURKINA FASO. THIS IS WHAT IT WAS LIKE FOR DAYS – MUSIC AND SINGING AND TALKING. IF YOU LIKE, YOU CAN PRETEND YOU ARE THERE TOO!  A REMINDER OF THE COMMUNITY THAT INSPIRED ALL OF THIS!

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US!
