Care International would like us to walk 10k steps a day for a week from 16th to 22nd April.
The team at Mantra is joining in – why don’t you?
It costs just £5 to register and you need to raise at least £100 in sponsorship.
you sign up – we’ll reward you with a £5 off voucher for Mantra!
How do I
The idea is to walk 10k steps
each day, for 7 days - that’s about 5 miles, or 8km, every day for a week.
How you do it is up to you.
It could be a dedicated walk
each morning before work or school; more at lunchtime; and then an evening
stroll; or you could do it all in one go each day (this could take c. 1.5 hours
per day). You decide!
Walking for water
Doing this, we can make a real
difference to the lives of women and girls around the world.
Every day thousands of women and girls, all over the world, have no choice
but to walk many miles to fetch water for their families. Their daily routine
deprives them of the chance to have an education or a job, and traps them in a
cycle of poverty.
money we raise can help build wells and water pumps closer to rural communities
so that women and girls don’t have to spend their days walking for water, and
can plan for a better future.
The difference we’ll make
run by Care International have helped bring water to communities all around the
world. In Ethiopia, CARE’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project built or
rehabilitated 1,479 water points in rural communities, providing safe and
adequate water access for 302,192 people. 80% of households there now
travel less than half an hour to get water.
has led to an increase in girls’ school enrolment, improved school performance
and reduced incidences of violence against girls collecting water.
money we raise can really help change the lives of women around the world.
To say thank you….
We really want to encourage our Mantra followers to do this. So, if you
sign up to the challenge, email us a screen print of your confirmation,
and we will email you by return a £5 off
voucher to spend on Mantra.
