Walk For Water
Every March, Aidlink lead the Walk for Water campaign in Ireland. In 2022, students from 20 schools in Ireland took part in the campaign in solidarity with their counterparts in Africa.
In Turkana, Kenya a young girl can walk up to 30km to collect water for her family during the dry season, carrying up to 20 litres on her journey home. 15km is about 19,685 steps – that’s going to take you somewhere in the region of three hours.
That’s three hours that could have been spent learning. Three hours that could have been spent playing. Three hours of being a child.
