New leaflet for your walks!

Natasha Horsfield is the Campaigns and Communications intern at End Water Poverty. Here, she blogs about the new World Walks for Water and Sanitation leaflet and gives updates on the campaign so far!

Things are really hotting up here at End Water Poverty in the build up to the World Walks for Water and Sanitation! We have a great new resource available (soon be available in French too) to help you organise your walk and inspire others to get involved – the World Walks for Water and Sanitation Leaflet!

It’s a great resource to give out at walks, leave in local offices and hand out before World Water Day to encourage people to take part; explaining why the World is Walking for Water and Sanitation, why Water and Sanitation is SO important and why people should get involved!

The number of people who will be walking for water and sanitation around the world is now past 230,000! Exciting walks have been organised across the globe including in Belgium, where KTA-Wollemarkt are organising a 25km walk, in India where FANSA India have mobilised 25,000 people to walk in various locations, and in Madagascar where over 40,000 people are expected to walk! Other exciting events include 6km walks taking place in Sierra Leone (organised by WASH-Net Sierra Leone) and Benin (organised by ICA Benin) as well as multiple walks in Pakistan, the UK and Brazil to name just a few!

With campaign momentum building around the world, why not join a walk near to you, organise your own or sign up online! Details of how to do so and how your action can make a real difference can also be found in our new leaflet, available in the resources section of our website!
