Join CLEAN International’s Worldwide Walk for Water
Did you know that 1 in 9 people do not have access to clean water? Drinking contaminated water has short and long term health impacts that can be fatal. Today alone, over 2,000 people will die today from unclean water and almost half of these are children. Lack of access to clean water leads to the worldwide walk for water where women and children spend their days walking to obtain water. The average daily distance that people walk for water is 4 miles, but the search for water can take up to 12 hours every day. The water obtained through these methods can be highly contaminated and unsafe to drink.
CLEAN International’s Worldwide Walk for Water is a call to action during the month of March in honor of World Water Day, March 22. Throughout the month, thousands of people around the world track their miles (walking, running, biking, rowing, and more!) in a global goal to log 1,000,000 miles in one month for clean water.
We invite YOU to not only join us on World Water Day, but every day of March. Sign up your family, office, church, school, and friends. Compete with one another to see who can log the most miles. We encourage you to increase the impact of your walk by picking up trash (Earth Day is right around the corner) or carrying a gallon or bucket of water.
CLEAN International envisions a world where everyone, everywhere, has access to clean water. We want all women and children to be able gain an education and follow their dreams, instead of walking for water. Make your miles count this month and walk with us to help change lives. If you’d like to further your impact, join our Ripple Effect Program and create change every day of the year!
