Why take the challenge?

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

Put yourself in their shoes, step up to the challenge from 10-23 October 2016 and raise money and awareness for CARE Australia’s work. You can still sign up – it’s FREE!

By walking (or running) in her shoes, you can 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.
