Seeking peace. Striving for justice. Together.
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.
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.
UNICEF works in more than 100 countries to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Whether by restoring access to clean water after a disaster or promoting safe hygiene practices in schools and communities, UNICEF is on the ground helping children in need.
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.
