Plans for A Walk For Water 2010 are gearing up! So far, two Walks are confirmed. Join The Boyd School students in Chantilly, Virginia for their 2nd A Walk For Water on May 14, 2010. Become part of the 4th annual A Walk For Water on May 15, 2010 on the wooded paths of Lake Frank in Derwood, Maryland where 5 schools will come together! We've also heard from schools in Tennessee, Ohio and Florida.
Organize a Walk in your community! Our step-by-step planning guide makes it easy! Give your students an opportunity to be leaders in raising a voice for people who daily suffer the consequences of not having access to water.

Raise funds to build a permanent water source in the Azawak! We will soon have A Walk For Water page on the Amman Imman website where schools can register their event. We will provide many tools for you to use to conduct a successful and meaningful fundraiser includng Registration and Sponsorship Forms, a media kit and materials through which your students and community can learn more about the water crisis in the Azawak and how they can directly help. You will be able to download these resources. You will also have an option to set up online registration and donation collection for your Walk, if you choose. Contact me and I'll make sure you have these tools as soon as they are available. I am here to help!
World Water Day is March 22. A Walk for Water would be a great opportunity to highlight the issues of water scarcity in the Sahel region, particularly in the large region of Azawak where there is barely any infrastructure. Yet, there are solutions! Even in the most difficult of conditions, Amman Imman is working hard to create a better future for the people.
April 22 is Earth Day, another good day around which to plan A Walk For Water. Climate change and a lengthening dry season affects the lives of the half million people in the Azawak today. People are dying of thirst. Walk for the children of the Azawak and alleviate their suffering!
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the children and families of the Azawak!
Register your event by filling out this form and start to plan your walk today!
