Support women and girls With 10,000 steps a day

Walk 10,000 steps a day for a week and raise money to help women and girls out of poverty.

Stand up and walk in solidarity with women and girls in developing countries who walk miles every day collecting water for their families.
These gruelling trips mean they often don’t have time to go to school or make a living, so they are unable to reach their full potential in life.

Please help us build safe water sources close to families like Eliza’s so she can drink safe, clean water and have time to go to school.

Will you walk 10,000 steps a day for a week and raise money for women and girls in the poorest communities?

Walking Ideas

Why not walk to and from work? You could walk part of the journey or get off the bus or train a stop or two early. You might even save some money on your fare – and you could add this to your fundraising.

Fundraising Ideas

What about walking dressed in something silly or unusual? Pick a different outfit every day. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you a little more for your efforts – or promise to walk in an extra-silly outfit if you raise enough funds. Are you a guy? For a different kind of Walk In Her Shoes you could walk in high heels or drag!
