THE YOUTH ARE THE FUTURE
At the heart of Walking for Water are our amazing teens from Virginia and California who bring this event to life every year. Our main goal is to create an opportunity for our teen groups to find their gifts, step into leadership, and engage in social action.
When you support Walking for Water, you support their creativity, passion, and committed hearts - as well as help at-need communities in Africa and India. Your support runs deep! Thank you!
WATER IS LIFE
Social action is crucial! You might not realize it, but there are many in the world without access to fresh water. For them, daily life includes walking several miles every day to collect water - usually in 5-gallon containers or large buckets.
If you've ever carried 5 gallons - it weighs about 45 lbs. Imagine walking three or more miles to your home with that on your back, or balanced on your head. Imagine that you might be young - 13 or 14 - and because you fetch water it is hard to make it to school - since most of the morning is spent walking and carrying.
This is a reality for many.
Our mission at Wisdom Spring is to help make the situation better. By creating water wells and covering tuition for children we hope to ease that daily burden. We also make sure to focus on the most vulnerable: orphans, girls, and marginalized communities - as barriers to access can be greater.
Your donation has a direct impact. Thousands over the last 17 years have felt the positive impact of having access to clean water.
And as we mentioned above, this event happens because of the dedication and commitment of the teens from high schools in Virginia and California. Your support has DOUBLE IMPACT! ONE - It supports Youth in the USA. TWO - It supports at-need communities in the World. Your support is vital to keep this work thriving!
A DYNAMIC EXPERIENCE FOR WALKING FOR WATER 2022
Our event is hosted through Donor Drive and the Virtual Walking App Move Spring.
And all to support impactful projects in Africa and India. We work hard to find projects that support communities requesting assistance with water and education initiatives. Even small donations can create a lasting impact in the communities we connect to. This only happens through support from excellent individuals like you!
