How far would you walk to get clean water? For women in Africa and Asia, the average trip is 6km – nearly 8,000 steps and countless lost hours. This summer, lots of us are joining together to post our #stepsforwater to highlight the burden that’s trapping so many people in poverty. Ready for the next step?
3 more small steps you can take to help beat poverty for good:
- Be one of the first to hear about volunteer places with Oxfam Festivals. Sign up to our mailing list.
- Campaign with us. Help break down the barriers that keep people poor.
- Support your local Oxfam shop. Grab a bargain on the high street or online.
