Students from Thomas Hardye School are doing a sponsored walk from Dorchester to Osmington Mills where they will have to collect a minimum of 5 litres of water and then carry it back. A total distance of 18 miles. We are doing this to raise as much money for Wateraid as possible and to empathise with people all over the world that have to do a Walk for Water on a daily basis.
WaterAid help the world’s poorest communities to transform their lives with clean water.1 in 10 people don’t have access to safe water and 1 in 3 don’t have access to a decent toilet. We want a world where everyone everywhere has these basic human rights by 2030. Together we can make that happen.
Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene should be a normal part of everyone’s daily life. Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.With clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, children are born healthier. They get the chance to go to school and grow up to become adults. Women and men get to earn a living. Whole communities start to thrive. It sounds normal and it should be.
