World globe with country committees wording

walkathons begin at committee level

Our Country Steering Committee (CSC) members are the heroes and heroins of the Walk For Africa (W4A) project. Without them, we cannot take a single step in our 10-year walkathon journey.

These are the people who drive our Mission, realise our Vision, and exemplify our Values.

Our CSCs in each of the 40 host countries are actively involved in all aspects of the project as they arrange and coordinate their home country walkathons. They work with government departments, such the departments of Tourism, Environment, and Conservation, as well as provincial and municipal departments, to obtain support and permits. They handle transportation, logistical issues, and contract local suppliers where possible. That’s the whole idea behind sustainable tourism – to spend money where it counts the most – with local communities.

SUPPORT

Our admin team, known as the Correlation Network Office (CNO), is based in Cape Town, South Africa. The CNO provides the CSCs with all of the marketing tools, technical expertise, and financial support necessary to organise a successful series of walkathons. And, as each country launches and concludes its walkathon, we all learn from the experience to improve the next county’s event.

COUNTRY PROJECT MANAGERS

Country Project Managers (CPM) are generally the CSC Chairpersons, many of whom are actively involved in the country’s tourism industry, such as the owner or representative of a Destination Management Company, a Tour Operator business, or a registered Tour Guide in the country. 

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

If you are a citizen of one of our 40 host countries and would like to get involved by volunteering to serve on a Country Steering Committee, please email info@walk4africa.org and indicate which country you represent.
