GE Volunteers is a global network of “good people doing great things”. The mission of GE Volunteers is to facilitate and support volunteering activities that improve lives and meet critical needs. These activities are carried out through a wide range of projects in the areas of health, education, the environment and community-building. GE Volunteers and WE are partnering together on WE Walk For Water – an international fundraising initiative, designed to raise awareness about global water issues while raising funds to provide a solution—making clean, safe water accessible to WE partner communities around the world. The goal is to transform the lives of 80,000 people with access to clean water.
We are so excited to have GE Volunteers join WE as we walk and raise money for the millions of women and children who walk hours each day to collect water. By improving access to clean water, girls can attend school, parents can run sustainable farms and communities can lift themselves out of poverty with improved health, nutrition, education and opportunity. Clean water is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
$25. That’s what it costs to give one person clean water for life. Clean water isn’t a luxury—it’s a basic human right. And when we all work together, our small actions will create a tidal wave of good.
