The WATSAN Walk for Water is one of our key fundraising opportunities. Every two years a large group of supporters gather for a weekend and take part in a sponsored 20+-mile walk to raise vital funds for the projects in Uganda.
The previous five walks have raised a total of some £80,000, and made important contributions towards our projects. In 2019 we completed a walk in the Quantock Hills in Somerset to support a project at Kihihi Hill, close to the Rift Valley where a serious drought made life very difficult in 2016. This event raised over £17,000 for WATSAN, thanks to our dedicated supporters.
We are delighted too that the concept is spreading! In China a “Walk for Water” organised by Rebecca Twitchin at a school has raised several thousand pounds for WATSAN.
Our partners in Uganda, NKKD WATSAN, have also organised their own Walks for Water to raise funds for their projects. Read more about the Ugandan Walk for Water in Bwambara.
