Walk for Water with Amman Imman on May 10!

Dear Friends of the Azawak, 

Amman Imman: Water is Life invites you and your family to the 8th annual A Walk for Water, a global service event on Saturday, May 10th at the Locust Grove Nature Center, just steps from the Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland. 

A Walk for Water supports Amman Imman's activities to drill deep wells and provide sustainable development for indigenous communities in West Africa.

This is a great family event and a perfect way to teach your children, family and friends about water scarcity, which is a growing global issue. In the Azawak region of Niger and Mali, children walk 35 miles to bring water home to their families. At 
A Walk for Water, students and families will walk 3 miles in solidarity with the children of the Azawak.
