Your hosts, the folks at Bonavista Church
Welcome to Bonavista

The Walk for Water is a 5km walk through the Bonavista Downs Community. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the BBQ after the walk.


In Kona, Burkina Faso, women and girls walk 5km or more EVERY DAY to fetch dirty water.


100% of the proceeds of the walk go directly to the water project, thanks to generous donors who pay all our overhead.
