Support women and girls With 10,000 steps a day

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.

Eliza’s young feet should be skipping, playing or walking to school. Instead she bears the responsibility for domestic chores, like so many other women and girls in the poorest countries across the world.
