‘The Blue Mile’ by WaterAid India is the first of its kind, Run for Water – focusing on sensitising people about the struggles of millions of people to access water everyday.

Availability and access to water still remains a big issue in India. The burden of collecting water falls mainly on girls and women giving them no time to play, go to school and earn a living. Clean water helps babies make it through their vulnerable first five years, gives new mums the best chance of survival and gives everyone a fighting chance of avoiding waterborne diseases. Clean water gives people the time and resources to find jobs, learn new skills and run successful businesses. It helps them break free from poverty and change their lives for good.

With your support you’ll achieve more than just your goal, you’ll be helping us to reach ours too: clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030.
