In Liberia over 1,500 people, mainly from the slum communities in and around Monrovia, walked in 2012.


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.

This year, on and around World Water Day, more than 600,000 people in more than 40 countries came together to tell politicians to stick to the commitments they have made to on water and sanitation. As a result of this, decision makers made commitments and took steps to increase access to water and sanitation, and to ensure the realisation of the human rights to water and sanitation.

However, we are still amid a global water and sanitation crisis which kills almost 2,000 children every day. And that’s why we will walk again for water and sanitation every year until the human right is realised and everyone has sustainable access to water and sanitation. Join us in demanding our leaders provide the clean running water and safe and hygienic sanitation everyone needs to live the lives they choose.
