Walk for education. Walk for a future. Walk for change. Walk for hope.
A simple step can change a life
In a remote part of Papua New Guinea, hundreds of high school students leave their homes each year to walk 300kms to get to their closest school.

This type of scenario is common in third-world countries all over the world.

How education is transforming communities
We believe that education is the key to transforming communities and reducing poverty, suffering, and injustice worldwide.
Education plays a vital role in creating and maintaining a healthy and successful life. It provides people with the skills needed to overcome poverty and protect themselves. Education offers people the chance to live a life of freedom and opportunity.
Education gives hope to an entire community
Education doesn’t only impact the student, it impacts a community. Educated young people who are members of a community are empowered to act as advocates for economic and social change. Education leads to better health outcomes, economic development and a lasting legacy of meaningful impact.
