Our Movement

What We're About

It all started with one question — "What would a movement to fight the global water crisis look like in central Pennsylvania?" — that has since transformed into a national movement. 

Our movement is unique because we don't just combat the global water crisis, but we equip and empower youth around the country to be the changemakers leading the charge. We are comprised of ambitious students who are eagerly activating our communities to join the fight. 

 

Students learn invaluable leadership and communication skills.

Communities unite around a cause that everyone can get behind.

Developing communities get access to sustainable clean water sources.

Everyone wins when we Walk for Clean Water.  

How We Do It

Walk for Clean Water thrives as a collaborative effort within a collective global movement, mobilizing students to leverage the diverse strengths of their local communities to aid communities abroad. This strategy is unprecedented.

 

Walk for Clean Water and its nonprofit partner, Thirst Project, understand that American communities become engaged stakeholders when businesses, students, and families are all given hands-on opportunities to experience the water crisis and contribute towards fighting it.

The ultimate hands-on experience? A Walk for Clean Water. We equip and prepare student leaders to launch community-based walks that represent the journey taken by millions every day. Not your average charity fundraiser, these state-of-the-art events each raise thousands of dollars in an epic celebration that unites people from all walks of life.

The big idea? When we join together — as students, parents, businesses, communities — we truly have the power to tackle our world's biggest issues.
