How far will your class pledge to walk in March?

62km

(2km/day

That's how far some people must walk each day to the nearest water source

124km

(4km/day)

That's the typical round trip that many women and young children have to make each day

248km

(8km/day)

Droughts caused by climate change force many to walk over 8km just to gather water

Or your own amount

Any amount counts, walk as little of as much as you want to.

Why March for Water?

Make a difference for your students and for those in need

As Spring arrives and days get longer, pledge to walk further in March to reconnect your students with nature and feel the rush of fresh air in your lungs. Not only will your whole class feel better for it, but you will all be joining a global movement of people determined to help change lives with clean water.

people don't have access to clean water

That's 785 million people who have no choice but to make long, tiring, and often dangerous journeys to remote water sources - and then haul heavy cans or buckets back home. It's a journey that for some is an eight kilometre round trip, denying them the chance to keep safe, stay in school or in work.
