What is Walk the World?

End Hunger: Walk the World is an annual event to raise money and awareness for WFP’s efforts to fight child hunger and malnutrition. The Walk is a joint effort of WFP and its corporate partners, led by TNT, Unilever and DSM. Employees from these companies walk with WFP staff and beneficiaries, celebrities and VIPs as well as government and NGO partners to show their solidarity in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. The walk is a 24-hour relay with participants in each of the world’s time zones walking five kilometers. It begins in Auckland, New Zealand and finishes in Samoa. In the Philippines, Walk The World Isang Hakbang Pilipinas will be held on June 6 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
