Taking the World’s Number One Public Health Crisis to the Streets

Ana Kolodzinski is Director of Communications at WASH Advocates, a nonprofit advocacy effort in Washington DC entirely dedicated to helping to solve the global safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) challenge. Here, she blogs about the World Walks for Water and Sanitation.

WASH Advocates works with top political and social leaders to make the world’s number one public health concern, lack of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), their concern. Advocacy is about clear convincing arguments distributed through powerful networks to bring about change. Advocacy is bolstered with social mobilization and creates a powerful unstoppable momentum to bring about political action.

The World Walks for Water and Sanitation brings the world’s number one public health issue to the streets, strengthening the voice of the billions of people without access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. Through these walks, these voices are heard by both local and international leaders. This movement is about ending needless suffering, getting children back into school and breaking the cycle of poverty. The World Walks for Water and Sanitation is about compassion, and more importantly action!


Become an advocate by joining us as we take a stand for the millions that walk every day to find safe drinking water and a safe place to go to the toilet. Join the World Walks for Water and Sanitation!
