Walk with Water fundraiser Thursday

DeKALB – You might see several people walking laps on the MLK Commons at Northern Illinois University carrying five gallons of water Thursday.

Those people will be walking in shoes on flat terrain and carrying clean water, but it’s meant to replicate a chore many girls in Tanzania complete daily, according to a news release.

Girls in the southeast African country walk along the road carrying yellow containers called jerrycans to a waterhole, which often has contaminated water.

The event will raise money for Tanzania Development Support, a DeKalb-based nonprofit organization that provides service trips to Tanzania. The next trip will be this summer, and participants will lay the foundation for a library that will serve both the primary and secondary schools in the village.

For more information and applications,go to Tanzania Development Support’s website at tdsnfp.org.
