Walk In Her Shoes CARE

Walk In Her Shoes

She needs to walk an average of 6 km a day to gather the things she needs to keep her family alive. CARE is challenging you to try and experience what this is like.

Walk In Her Shoes is a CARE Canada campaign where participants challenge themselves with a personal or team walk and raise money to empower women and girls in the developing world.

On March 8th, join thousands of Canadians who will walk 8,000 steps for 8 days to simulate what a woman or girl experiences daily in the developing world.

Women and girls in developing countries are disproportionately affected by poverty and are often responsible for collecting water, firewood and other basic necessities. This leaves little time to attend school, access health services or earn money to support their families.

Raising funds for Walk In Her Shoes allows CARE to empower women and girls by working to improve gender equality, improving access to health services, providing access to education, building and rehabilitating water/sanitation systems, and livelihoods assistance, including women-focused village savings and loan associations.

The 2012 Walk In Her Shoes registration kit includes a pedometer, shirt, poster and other fun goodies. Register Now
