Walking for Water is an annual fundraising event in the Netherlands, organized by Simavi and Aqua for All, who have bundled their forces to ensure access to clean water for all.
Spread out over various walking routes, more than ten thousand primary school children will walk a trial of 6 kilometers with 6 liters of water, imitating their peers in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. They will experience the hardship of having to walk 6 kilometers for water every day and learn more about the global water issues.
With this event the children will raise funds for building water supply and toilet facilities in school in developing countries like Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to improve the accessibility to safe drinking water and clean toilets for primary school children. This helps prevent dangerous, contagious illnesses like cholera and diarrhea.
