Super Waterboys

The Super Waterboys are a group of 5 and 6 year old friends who want to help end the water crisis in our lifetime

We learnt that some children around the world do not have clean water taps in their homes! Or even outside their house! Maybe not even in their whole village! Can you imagine that? Not being able to have water whenever you want?!

Instead, they and their families have to walk 3 miles/5km (on average) to collect water from other places, like muddy or dried up streams. Then they have to carry the water all the way home! Now they can wash themselves, wash their food, cook and hydrate... Until the collected water runs out and they have to do that long water walk all over again.

Sometimes people can become ill drinking the dirty water they can collect. And sometimes they can’t go to school because they have to walk so far to collect water instead.

So we decided we had to help!! We set ourselves the challenge to walk 3 miles/5km on 24th March 2024 (which feels like a long way for us because we are only 5 and 6) and hope you will sponsor us to complete the challenge. We want to raise a big pot of money that Charity Water can use to build fresh water taps or wells in villages, so other 5 and 6 year olds around the world can just concentrate on being kids!

Clean water changes everything
In communities without access to clean water, women and girls spend hours everyday collecting dirty water. Not only does the walk for water keep children out of school and prevent women from earning an income, the water often carries diseases that make everyone sick.
When a community gets access to clean water, women and girls get their lives back. They start businesses, improve their homes, and take charge of their own futures.
