WaterAfrica’s Walk4Water has come to Colorado Springs!

Sandi Swinford in Zambia.

New to Colorado Springs and to Pulpit Rock, Sandi Swinford traveled to Zambia last summer with World Vision and WaterAfrica to see firsthand how bringing Clean Water with education on hygiene and sanitation transforms lives.

Whether you are a grandparent, or have babies in strollers, this event is for you. Bring your bucket (or borrow one of the many we will have of varying sizes) and emulate the “walk for water” done every day as a matter of survival.

Since 2005, Walk4Water has brought clean water for life to over 30,000 villagers in rural Zambia.
