Walk for Water

Every day, women and girls spend 200 million hours walking to collect water for their families. That’s 8.3 million days. More than 22,800 years.

Inspired by the story of the little girl, Violet from Zambia, the GEMS Education fraternity recreated a unique learning experience for all its stakeholders and the local community by organizing the - ‘WALK FOR WATER’ campaign! 5000 students of Gems Legacy School, 2000 students of Jeddah School and 500 students of Mussoorie Public School, India participated in the campaign. All participants walked 15 laps around their respective school turfs with a bucket of water aiming not to waste a single drop. The awareness-raising concept is centred around building empathy for those without easy access to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right.

This campaign strives to spark an immediate collective social consciousness and responsibility as we move away from the notion that clean water is a privilege of only the affluent.
