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.

Get Involved

Every year, schools across Ireland take part in the Walk for Water campaign. Over the years, thousands of students have walked for water in their communities, raising awareness of water poverty in Africa, raising vital funds for vulnerable children.

If you and your school would like to take part in Walk for Water 2022, keep an eye on our website for information about Walk for Water 2023!
