Walk4Water

In some parts of Africa women and children have to walk 4 miles everyday to get drinking  water. On April 18th, 2010 Citytech students and faculty walked 3.72 miles from Brooklyn bridge to the Gowanus canal to join Live Earth to raise awareness of the water shortage around the globe.  Each participant carried a gallon of water  as they walked all the way to the canal. 

 Join us once again on March22,2012 to continue the mission of raising awareness of the water crises around the globe.

 As preparations begin, students get creative.

  1. Most people living in Karachi Pakistan do not have access to clean water. Apart from obvious health problems, lack of portable water is leading to social, economic, and political activities as well. Karachi with an unofficial figure of 15 million people, needs about 600 million gallons of water per day, but the city currently receives approximately 435 million gallons of water. Due to over crowding, the water supply in man parts of the city is insufficient.
