Walking for Water

Everyone is welcome to join the Walking for Water hike around the village, together with the Stanford Striders and Grades 5s and 6s from Okkie Smuts and Die Bron. We will be leaving from Castle Herriot, corner of Longmarket and Adderley Streets picking up the children from Okkie Smuts and then Die Bron, doing a loop in Stanford South, then past the Willem Appel Dam to take the children back to their schools.

If you have a flag or a banner or anything that you would like to use to express your concerns about the plight of the waterless, please wear/ bring it along. Also, please carry 2 litres of water with you on the walk to show your empathy for the women and children who have to walk miles with more than 5 litres on their backs in order to keep their families supplied.
