Story

At daybreak, Grace's tiny 5 year old feet swiftly carry her along the narrow dirt path. She softly hums her ABC's, as butterflies flutter before her and crickets chirp in the dry grasses she brushes past. As the Ugandan sun begins its day's journey across the bright blue sky, Grace begins her journey for water. Grace's little sister, Judith, who is a month shy of her third birthday, scampers behind, struggling to keep up as they make their way through the high grasses that stand far taller than both girls.

But unlike so many people who begin their day with morning exercise, this 1.75 mile walk in Uganda, isn't for fun or to take in the beauty of a peaceful morning. It's out of necessity - Grace and Judith are making the day's first trek to get water for the family.

With the nearest borehole about 6 kilometres (3.7 miles) away, the journey for clean water is more than 7 miles round trip. So the family instead settles for contaminated swamp water that's half that distance - about 2.8 kilometres (1.75 miles) - away.

Grace and Judith must make their daily trek so the family can survive, and struggling for survival is what this community is accustomed to. With your help we can provide Grace, Judith and more children like them with life-changing clean water by taking part in the Global 6K.

Every step you take is one they won't.
