World Water Day 2017 – Over 200 students from King’s College schools in Madrid will take part in “Walk for Water”

22nd March 2017

Students from King’s College and King’s College School, both in Madrid, will partake in the “Walk for Water” by carrying 4 to 5 litres of water on their backs for a distance of 6km. The pupils will do this to emulate the millions of children who are forced to do the same journey every day in developing countries.

  • “Walk for Water” is a movement that every year calls for walks in different parts of the world. The purpose is to make society aware of the dramatic situation in which nearly 750 million people around the world find themselves in; the constant struggle living live without access to safe drinking water.
  • Along with the walk, King’s College students will raise funds for Amigos de Nyumbani, a Charity that works in a particularly dry and arid village in eastern Kenya.

This Friday 24th March, a group of students from King’s College Madrid (Tres Cantos) and King’s College School (La Moraleja) will complete the “Walk for Water”, taking part in a movement that, every year, calls for walks in different parts of the world to commemorate World Water Day (22nd March).
