4,500 people including many children took part in walks all over Madagascar in 2012, with the Minister for Water and Sanitation declaring the government's commitment to improving services to meet the needs of the entire population.


The World Walks for Water and Sanitation is a global event demanding action to address the water and sanitation crisis.

The World Walks for Water and Sanitation is a global event demanding universal access to water and sanitation across the world.

Last year, on and around World Water Day, more than 400,000 people in more than 65 countries came together in person and online to tell politicians to stick to the commitments they have made to on water and sanitation. As a result of this, decision makers have taken steps to fulfil their promises.

However, we are still no nearer an end to a global water and sanitation crisis which currently kills almost 2,000 children every day. And that’s why this year – and every year until we have universal access – we will walk again for water and sanitation, and unite in calling on our leaders to provide the clean running water and safe and hygienic sanitation everyone needs to live the lives they choose.
