Walking With A Purpose

It is 6:30 a.m. and the sun is just coming up over Mt. Kilimanjaro. A giraffe saunters through the Acacia trees as I lace up my shoes. Today, I am walking to Oltepesi Primary School with Leah, a student in Class 4. We leave her boma hand-in-hand. Our feet pound the dry earth leaving a dusty trail behind us. Just moments later we are joined by two other girls, and then 3 boys. Soon our ‘walking club’ will include 20 or more children, all of whom walk over an hour to get to school.

We all walk with a purpose!

Every day, women and girls in Longido walk long distances to complete everyday tasks: walking to collect water, walking to the market or walking to school.


We invite you to walk, run or cycle in your community and raise funds to support life-changing programs for women and girls in Longido.


Our goal is to raise $15,000 in just 7 days with the support of walkers, runners and cyclists.

Choose YOUR Challenge


  • Set a personal goal of walking or running every day for 7 days and visit all 7 villages, a total distance of 50 km. That is about 7 km per day or 10,000 steps a day.
  • Interested in cycling every day? Set a goal of 100 km for 7 days, the distance equal to cycling to and from all 7 villages in Londigo District.


  • Sign up for the Challenge with friends, family members or co-workers. Walk or run a distance of 50 km together, or cycle a 100 km together. This a great team building activity that you can do on your lunch hour or while connecting with friends and family.


  • You may also want to share the Challenge where each team member chooses to walk, run or cycle to one village, while others head out on other days – and together you complete the distance.


  • Sign up for the Challenge as an individual student or as a school group or class.
  • Consider hosting a fundraiser at your school and encourage others to join the Challenge. Earn volunteer hours while raising funds for girls’ education. We have resources to support your fundraising activities. Contact us today.
