WHAT: “22andyou” WATER WALK FOR OPERATIONWATER.ORG
WHERE: WALL STREET BULL TO MOZAMBIQUE EMBASSY (E 50th ST.)
WHY: TO ELIMINATE THE NEED TO WALK FOR WATER
*HOW: CARRY BUCKETS, JUGS, LUGGAGE, GROCERIES, WEIGHTs, or WHATEVER.
The goal is to simulate the daily journey millions of women and children make in order to survive across sub-saharan africa.
(BUCKETS AVAILABLE ON A FIRST COME BASIS. PARTICIPANTS WILL NEED TO BRING THEIR OWN ITEMS TO CARRY)
DETAILS: CARBON + Operation Water have joined forces to develop a sustainable village model that enables clean water infrastructure, filtration, energy, decentralized farming, connectivity, and education throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
We have started our initial project in Mozambique in a village called Nwadjahane.
This will be a blueprint to create “CARBON copies” for many other communities to follow so that we can solve this crisis once and for all over the next 20 years.
