The first step is the hardest. But you’ve already taken it. You have a cause you care about and you want to take action. Not only that, but you want to invite your community to join you. Thank you!
Because 663 million people in the world live without clean water. We believe that a problem this basic, on a scale this large, is completely unacceptable. This isn’t just an inconvenience. Water is essential to life. So, our mission is to make dirty water clean. Clean water brings with it improved health, education and prosperity. So, let’s bring clean water.
We walk because they walk. Living in the developed world means we don’t have to work very hard to get water. We usually walk across the room to fill a glass. But the rest of the world walks a lot farther. The average person in Africa and Asia walks 6 kilometers to collect water every day. If they don’t walk, they don’t have water for drinking, cooking or cleaning. We walk because it connects us with the people who need clean water.
Your success is our goal. Our first resource is our staff. We want to help you. To get connected with someone who can support your walk, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’re thinking about coordinating a walk.
