Ambie lives in a village in Ethiopia where access to water is dangerously scarce. She is just 10 years old, but instead of going to school, she spends her days walking to collect water for her family. Ambie dreams of becoming a nurse, but without an education this will never be a reality. “I wish I could go to school, but I have to walk and that is the way it is.” But it doesn’t have to be this way. Join Walk In Her Shoes and you can change the lives of girls like Ambie, giving them the chance to fulfil their potential and find a better future.

I have signed up to walk FIVE miles a day for a week to raise money for Walk In Her Shoes (run by Care International) which will help bring water to villages. Most women/girls in some places walk five miles a day to provide water for their family leaving little time for anything else.

I’d love it if you could sponsor me or start your own fundraising campaign for this worthy cause.

I’ll be doing this week of walking starting March 1st. Thanks, Veronika xxxxx
