BENEFITING: Nuru International

Kristin Hayes


BH2O+ is an event in support of NURU International, in which students and community members walk one mile around Marshall's campus with a bucket of water on their head in representation of what women in underdeveloped countries every day. Many women and young girls have to walk miles (with or without shoes) to even gain access to water, much less clean water. Because of this responsibility many of the girls do not attend school, as well as the many dangers that come with walking miles alone without protection including getting mugged, raped, beaten and catching diseases from simple things like poor hygiene.

A very important aspect of BH2O+ is that IT IS NOT JUST FOR STUDENTS. We encouraging the community to get involved as extreme poverty does not have age limits.

Nuru International is a social venture dedicated to fighting the extreme poverty and the global water crisis. Their mission is to eradicate extreme poverty by holistically empowering rural communities to achieve self-sufficiency and inspiring the developed world to confront the crisis of extreme poverty. To achieve this goal NURU utilizes water catchment systems, latrines and handwashing stations in places like undeveloped communities like Kuria, Kenya. Be Hope to Her raises money and awareness for NURU to further their work in fighting the greatest humanitarian crisis of our generation: extreme poverty.

BH2O+ will take place in the plaza behind the Memorial Student Center on April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants that preregister to walk can do so at no cost (um, that means it's FREE guys!) and will receive a discount on a BH2O+ T-shirt! To register the day of the event we kindly ask for a donation of $5 :) Even if you do not plan to walk we hope that you will come out and support the fight against extreme poverty!
