UNICEF Tap Project

Heard something interesting and meaningful from Alfred today when I stepped into the office. He introduced this UNICEF Tap Project to me which I found I should share with all of you.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)  is a United Nations Program headquartered in New York City that provides long-term humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. It is one of the members of the United Nations Development Group and its Executive Committee. They are running this Tap Project worldwide and now you can do something to help! Without touching your phone for 10 minutes, UNICEF Tap Project donors and sponsors will fund 1 day clean water for a child in need!

UNICEF Tap Project:

10 Minutes = 1 Day of Water

The UNICEF Tap Project invites you to go without your phone to help children in need of clean water. Are you up for the challenge?
For every ten minutes you don’t touch your phone, UNICEF Tap Project donors and sponsors can fund one day of clean water for a child in need.* It’s that simple.

Take the Challenge!

Your total time will help UNICEF provide clean water and sanitation to children in need around the world.
  • 1. Visit uniceftapproject.org on your phone.
  • 2. Begin the challenge right away to see how long you can go without your smartphone.
  • 3. Donate to provide even more clean water to kids. Just $1 can provide 40 days of clean water.

Why Water?

No one can survive without water, and yet 768 million people around the world do not have safe, clean water to drink. 2.5 billion people don’t have access to a proper toilet.
It isn’t just inconvenient – it’s lethal.
Every day, 1,400 children die from diseases directly linked to unsafe water or a lack of basic sanitation facilities.

What is the UNICEF Tap Project? 

The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides clean water and adequate sanitation to children around the world.
With just $5, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 200 days.
Since 1990, more than 2.1 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners.
