Why Walk For Water

By 2025, India is on the brink of becoming a water-stressed nation, underscoring the urgent necessity for implementing comprehensive and integrated water supply schemes. The availability of clean water is crucial for building a robust, healthy society and a productive workforce. Ensuring access to clean water not only significantly diminishes the prevalence of waterborne diseases such as diarrhea and dysentery but also lightens the load of fetching water.

This change particularly benefits women and children, freeing them to invest more time in domestic tasks and educational endeavors, respectively. Proactively addressing water scarcity and enhancing clean water accessibility are pivotal for advancing public health, empowering communities, and driving socio-economic progress across the nation.
