Want to make it tougher?

Make your Water Walk tougher — just add water!

Carry 5-10 litres/kg (or equivalent weight) while you walk. Children walking to collect water often carry up to 20 litres with them.

Why do the Water Walk?

Every day women and girls across the world collectively spend 200 million hours collecting water.

By signing up to the Water Walk and raising money for Unicef, you're helping us achieve our goal that by 2030 no one will have to walk for more than 30 minutes round trip for water.
