Walk to change her future
|VIRTUAL WALK FOR GIRLS AND WATER||DAY OF THE GIRL VIRTUAL CELEBRATION|
|SEPTEMBER 30TH - OCTOBER 9TH||OCTOBER 9TH|
|Registration opens September 1st||Free tickets available September 1st|
We're all doing things a little differently this year due to the pandemic, and we're no exception. We'll miss seeing so many supporters at our annual in person event, but we're excited to instead ask you to join us on a virtual walk for girls and water! We will walk in unity with women and girls who trek up to 10 hours each day to collect water in Western Rajasthan, India, where we serve. These same women and girls continue to walk despite the global pandemic, placing them and their families at great risk. Join us! 10 days, 10 walks or acts for the 10 hours that she walks every day. Register, choose a fundraising goal, get started and change her future with us.
When she has water she has health, education, opportunity.
When she has water, everything can change.
Water access allows girls to go back to school, and women to start businesses and earn money. Women can invest in their homes, the future of their children, and take their lives into their own hands. The impact of giving water is extraordinary, and ripples out. And you can make it happen!
Join us virtually from anywhere in the world. Raise awareness and funds to end the water and gender inequality crisis facing women and girls globally, and in Western Rajasthan, India where we serve.
You can walk a few steps, a mile or six around your neighborhood, in the woods, and if you are unable to walk you can pick any activity you’d like to support our women and girls—paint, teach someone something, write, run, hike, meditate—whatever you like. We welcome participants to do as much as they are able and raise funds based on whatever goal they set.
Finish your walk with our Day of the Girl Virtual Celebration on October 9th.

Due to the collective health risks we are facing from the coronavirus, we have canceled our in-person Day of the Girl event. To achieve our COVID-19 relief fundraising goal, we’re asking you to virtually walk with us to the Day of the Girl in support of our mission to raise awareness of the water crisis facing women and girls globally, and in Western Rajasthan, India where we serve.
