What is Walk in Her Shoes?

Walk in Her Shoes is a flexible workplace challenge designed to motivate your staff and raise funds for CARE Australia.

Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6km every day to collect clean water. By walking in their shoes, you can raise funds to help provide water closer to home, meaning girls can go to school and women can earn an income instead of walking hours a day to collect water.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2017 challenge from 16-29 October. Together, you helped raise more than $150,000!
