Why get involved?

carry_water_girl2

Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6km every day to collect water, food and firewood for their families.

By donating to the Walk in Her Shoes challenge, you can raise funds to support CARE Australia’s vital projects that help reduce the distance women and girls have to walk by providing clean water and nutritious food close to home.

This means girls can spend more time in school, women can earn an income and together they can help their communities step out of poverty.

What is Walk in Her Shoes?

Walk in Her Shoes is CARE Australia’s biggest annual fundraising campaign.

The week-long challenge kicked off on International Women’s Day. Thousands of Australians walked 25km, 50km or 100km between 8 and 14 March 2016 to raise money and awareness for projects that help break the cycle of poverty.

Thank you to everyone who walked and fundraised during the 2016 challenge – together we’ve raised more than $500,000!
