On 21 May 2006, tens of thousands of people around the world will walk to help end child hunger. We believe child hunger can be ended by 2015. If you do too, then join the UN World Food Programme’s Walk the World. Together, we’ll play a key role in meeting the Millennium Development Goals.
When you sign up to participate in what will be the world's largest humanitarian event, you are lending your voice to a growing chorus of citizens all over the world who believe that a world with hungry children is a world that must be changed.
In 2005, with just a few months’ preparation, over 200,000 people in 91 countries and 266 cities walked the world on 12 June. These dedicated citizens raised US$1.5 million, and as a result, helped to feed over 70,000 children. In 2006 this campaign aims to have more than 750,000 walkers and raise US$5 million.
Join us now to make a difference!
