Teams are registering for the OxfamTrailwalker. Are you?

Everyday more and more people are signing up for the ultimate endurance test and the one-of-a-kind team challenge and raise funds to reduce extreme poverty and inequality in India.

The first Oxfam Trailwalker in India was hosted by Bengaluru in 2012.  After the success of the first Trailwalker in Bengaluru, Oxfam India introduced the second Trailwalker in Mumbai in 2013.

In 2014, a 50kms walk was introduced in the #OxfamTrailwalker, along with the 100km walk. 

Since it began in 2012, a total of 4,700 walkers have covered 4,70,000kms in a total of 8 Trailwalkers – five in Bengaluru and three in Mumbai.

If you calculate, the total distance covered in the 8 Trailwalkers is 11.5 times around the world.

You too can be part of this global phenomena.

Your every step makes a difference

Whether you're taking part in Oxfam Trailwalker or donating to a team, you're making a significant difference to the lives of others.

The money raised through the Trailwalker helps build the lives of some of India's poorest communities. 

Oxfam India works in partnership with over 60 grassroots NGOs to address root causes of poverty and injustice.
