A Walk Across the World
The Borderwalk project was thought up by Arjun and some friends during the last year at university after finding out about problems surrounding clean water access. The idea was to walk from Cardiff South Wales, UK to Cardiff New South Wales, Australia.
Borderwalk was inspired by the millions of people who walk for water on a daily basis, sourcing clean and safe water for them and their families. WaterAid has worked tackling this issue for years.
Here you'll find a journal of the Borderwalk trip and the problems that Arjun and the people who joined him along the way faced. Arjun is currently working on a book chronically the 5 years journey and the surreal things that happened along the way, whether it be being hunted by the Taliban or suffering from dysentery in the desert.
Here you'll find some videos from the walk. with the help of sponsors like Sony, Arjun was able to document the walk and share his journey with people along the way when possible.
Arjun brings the Borderwalk story to schools, universities and conferences around the world on a regular basis.
Cultivator, SLF and Hero RT are a few of the events in which Arjun has shared the Borderwalk story and conducted workshops.
