Genesis Foundation and the schools from the Council of International Schools (CIS) in Bogotá: Nogales, Fontana, Campestre, Santa Maria and Anglo Colombiano, are hosting the second Walking for Water (W4W) event with the aim of raising awareness about the importance and privilege of having access to drinking water.
On March 20th, the participating students will walk 2.5 miles (4 kms) carrying 1 gallon (4 lts) of water in a backpack.This distance roughly compares to the 6kms, that on average, millions of people including women and children in rural areas of developing countries just like Colombia have to travel everyday, just to access clean water.
The students will be sponsored with the help of their friends and families in order to raise funds to support Genesis Foundation.
For ever $1 dollar raised , Genesis will match the donation with an extra $1 dollar. Resources will be invested into providing drinking water for 25 early education centers of our program First Learning Steps in Tumaco, Nariño that currently benefits 2,316 children under the age of 5.
We invite you to become a sponsor of these students who are walking in recognition of underprivileged children.
