Heavy Lifter


Pius shoulders a big jerry can like he does every day when he walks to school. He lives in a very dry place in northwest Kenya.

For the walk to school, he may only fill his jug part way and pass it off to a friend after awhile. But he tries hard to carry his weight. Every child carries a jug of water to school each day. 

On the way home after school, all the kids stop at the waterhole again to carry home a jug of water for their mothers to use for cooking, cleaning, and watering the family’s livestock. 

Around the world, about 663 million people don’t have easy access to an improved water source. Like Pius they walk miles for dirty water. In sub-Saharan Africa, the average distance walked for water is 6K (3.73 miles) a day. 

Join World Vision’s Global 6K Walk for Water on May 6. It’s easy to sign up and walk – no heavy water jugs required. When you walk a 6K you can help bring water home to someone who needs it.
