Sponsored Walk to Empower women


Generation for Changarticle-4e & Development (GENCAD) is pleased to announce the date for our next sponsored walk:    Step Up for Africa Sponsored Walk.

The aim of this year’s event is to economically empower 100 women by providing them £250 micro-loan to start or boost their existing business.

Numerous studies have shown the importance of Women Economic Empowerment. According to the world bank;

  • Women reinvest a much higher portion in their families and communities than men
  • When income is in the hands of the mother, the survival probability of a child increases by about 20% in Brazil and in Kenya a child will be 17% taller since mothers reinvest more of their income in health and nutrition.
  • Agricultural productivity could be raised by as much as 20%

The walk:

  • The walk will be on Sunday 30th April 2017, from Mile End Park to Little Venice(7.5Miles) via the beautifully scenic Regent’s Canal, London.
  • All you need is commitments, energy, and a good pair of old walking shoes!


  • Registration fees of £20.
  • You will be provided with a branded T-Shirt and a cap.
  • To take part, please registered using Registration_form_2017 and email it to by 31st of March 2017.
