In the world’s poorest countries, women and girls have to spend their days walking for water. This daily trek prevents them from going to work or school, and means they can’t fulfil their potential.
But you can change this.
Walk 10,000 steps a day for a week and raise £100.
Your support can help improve access to water across the globe, giving women and girls time for work or school and the chance of a better future.
“Walk in solidarity with women and girls across the world…we can and we will make a difference.” Dr Helen Pankhurst, direct descendant of suffragettes Sylvia and Emmeline Pankhurst.

“This was a brilliant challenge for me, and kept me mindful of what other women and their families go through in order to meet daily needs. Thanks so much.”

The easiest way to reach your £100 target is to gain sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues. How about walking dressed in something silly or unusual, and asking people to sponsor you a little more for your efforts?More Ideas
