Children changing the world one step at a time. Register your school today!

Millions of children across Africa walk hours every day to find and collect dirty water for their families. When a community doesn’t have access to clean water, children are among those most impacted. They are more likely to get sick, miss school, and lose time they could be spending with their friends and families.

By hosting a ‘Walk for Water’ at your school, you can help your students experience what it’s like to walk just a fraction of this distance. Allowing them with every step, to make a difference for a child just like them!

Imagine walking on average 6 kilometres every day across difficult African terrain in the hot sun to collect water from polluted rivers and ponds.

Imagine doing this as a child and missing out on the opportunity to attend school, receive an education and play with your friends.

Imagine the relief and joy that comes when Water for Africa brings safe clean water to your school and community 

“We have done the Walk for Water at our school with our Year 3 students for the past three years and found it so amazing for helping the students to understand the cause they’re supporting, rather than just giving money as in a traditional fundraiser.”

“It’s a powerful moment when the students experience for themselves what so many of their peers around the world face every day, and learn the impact that improved access to clean water can have on the lives of children and their families. It’s a privilege to be a part of the incredible work Water for Africa are doing, and I would love to encourage other schools to get on board too!”
