Everyday in Africa, many people, particularly women, have to walk for miles to get water. The chore of fetching water is no small task, it involves walking sometimes up to 10 miles to the nearest water source, and carrying home the heavy containers filled with the day’s supply of water.
Through the month of June, The African Well Fund is asking you to “Walk 10 Miles in Her Shoes”. 84,480 Pennies ($844.80) lined up makes a mile of pennies.
We would like to have at least 10 cities participate, with each city raising a mile’s worth of pennies through various penny fundraisers. Our goal is to raise 10 miles worth of pennies.
