More than 50 engineers and humanitarians took up the challenge last week of carrying 20L of water for 6 km around Auckland.
The event was supported by Water New Zealand as part of World Water Day. According to the UN, walking 6 kms to fetch water is the average daily burden of many women and girls in low income countries. It’s time that could have been spent in education.
All the money raised supports Engineers Without Borders' work to empower and train locals involved in their own community development, to ensure than water access solutions are sustainable and focused on the long term. https://givealittle.co.nz/org/ewbnz/fundraisers
