Stanford Women Walk Together to Bring Clean Drinking Water to African Families

Original post made by FrancesF on Apr 21, 2009

More than 50 women took part in Stanford University's "Be Hope to Her" solidarity walk on April 21 to raise awareness of the need for clean drinking water in Africa. The walk was designed to demonstrate the
grueling daily task of water collection required by girls and women
throughout Africa.

Stanford is part of a nationwide effort that includes more than 700 students at 11 college campuses. As part of the "Be Hope to Her" events, these women raised funds to enable the drilling of four deep water wells at schools in Kuria, Kenya, as well as the engineering of rain water harvesting systems in Kenyan homes.
