To celebrate International Day of the Girl Child on Oct. 11, here are seven ways to empower women and girls worldwide — and right in our own neighborhoods.
A Missouri family has raised more than $130,000, appeared on TV, and traveled to Kenya as they strive to end the global water crisis while living out God’s mission for them through running the Global 6K for Water and half-marathons with Team World Vision. They believe they can see the end to the global water crisis in their lifetime.
World Vision’s Global 6K for Water is a virtual one-day event where people from all over the world walk and run 6K in their own neighborhoods to bring lasting clean water to children in need. Every step you take is one they won’t have to. Check out what people like you have to say about how easy and impactful it is to walk or run the Global 6K for Water.
World Vision U.S. President Edgar Sandoval Sr. reflects on how when World Vision brings clean water to a community, it lifts the burden of children like Ireen who must carry water — restoring their potential and dignity.
How can she reach for the stars when even water is unreachable? In the Great Rift Valley, poverty and lack of clean water create hardships for 8-year-old Ireen, who walks to collect water up to four times a day. World Vision is working alongside communities to bring the reality of clean water and good health to girls like Ireen.
Nicole Wetmore, a pastor from California, sponsored the child on her race bib at the Global 6K for Water in 2018. Because of her choice, an unforgettable moment was in store in her not even six months later.
