Take a Load


Samuel shoulders the jerry can he’ll take to school. Filled with water, how much would it weigh?

Samuel wants to do his share to carry water to school and to bring some home for mom. With other school kids, he walks 6K (3.73 miles) daily to carry water to his home in northwest Kenya. 

He’ll dig for water and scoop it out of the sandy hole cup by cup to fill the jug. Filled to the brim, it weighs more than 20 pounds. Can he really carry that load for miles?

Maybe not, but his mom needs twice that much daily for cooking, drinking, and washing dishes. She’ll have to carry most of it herself.

Finding and carrying water for miles is a burden for 319 million people in sub-Saharan Africa, 663 million people worldwide. 

You can help carry the load by joining World Vision’s Global 6K Walk for Water on May 6. And you don’t have to carry the water.
