Team Mantra is joining ‘Walk in Her Shoes 2019’– why not join in?

Ambie lives in a village in Ethiopia where access to water is dangerously scarce. She is just 10 years old, but instead of going to school, she spends her days walking to collect water for her family. Ambie dreams of becoming a nurse, but until she has time for school this will remain a dream.walk in her shoes care international

Without access to water, women and girls across the world are left with no choice but to spend their days walking for water. Instead of going to school or work they risk their personal safety to trek for miles to the nearest water source, to collect water that isn’t even clean.

“In my community, women have to walk 12 km each way to get water. There is always a line and it takes two to three hours to fill all my jerry cans, lifting buckets out of the borehole.”

– Zenaba Abderrahaman, Chad

To help these women, Team Mantra is taking part in Care International’s “Walk in Her Shoes” campaign from 5th – 12th May. Members of our team will be walking 10,000 steps every day in solidarity with the women who walk so far every day, sacrificing so much to simply get water for their community. And we think you should join us!mantra for care international

Care International works to build wells and water pumps closer to rural communities so that women and girls don’t have to spend their days walking for water. By signing up to “Walk In Her Shoes” you can help improve access to water, sanitation and hygiene for more women and girls in the world’s poorest countries, giving them the opportunity to break free from the poverty cycle and the chance of a better future.

We’ll be posting about our “Walk In Her Shoes” journey on social media, so you can keep up with our progress there! We hope you’ll join us in walking 10,000 steps, or whatever is manageable for you.

You can also support Care International with our “Empower” necklace – 25% of the sale price goes to the charity, helping them continue with the amazing work they do.
