Mantra is joining ‘Walk in Her Shoes 2018’– why not join in?

Walking in her Shoes for Care International Charity

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.

And if you sign up – we’ll reward you with a £5 off voucher for Mantra!

How do I do it?

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.

The 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

Projects 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.

This has led to an increase in girls’ school enrolment, improved school performance and reduced incidences of violence against girls collecting water.

The 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.
