Women’s Bank Walk 2019
2019 was the 10th anniversary of Finland’s biggest charity walk! Dozens of events were hosted all over the country and abroad between 6th and 15th September, with the main event day on 15th September.
The Women’s Bank Walk anniversary was a huge success; over two thousand people participated, 104 events were hosted and over 100 000 euros were raised towards supporting women’s employment opportunities! We will walk again next year. Please join us then!

How are the raised donations used?
The donations raised by Women’s Bank Walk events will support women in developing countries by providing them with education and entrepreneurship opportunities and the chance to earn a living. You can make a donation when signing up for the event. The standard donation, 30 euros, is the equivalent of one Profession, but participants can also choose to donate a different sum of their choosing. The donations from Women’s Bank Walk will be used in Women’s Bank projects in Africa and Asia. Providing women with job opportunities is shown to have a significant impact on the well-being of families: there are clear improvements in nutrition, health, schooling and housing conditions. Read more about Women’s Bank development work and it’s results.
We happily welcome companies to join the Women’s Bank Walk: they can encourage their staff to attend Women’s Bank Walk events and donate Professions on their behalf.
Thank you for giving women in developing countries a brighter future!
Do good and have fun – come join us at Finland’s biggest charity walk!
If you have any questions, our team leaders are happy to help.
