Walk in Her Shoes and help her step out of poverty.

Why get involved?


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

By signing up to Walk in Her Shoes and getting friends to sponsor you, 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.
