Seeking peace. Striving for justice. Together.
This year, the UNICEF Tap Project would like to invite you to transform the world's largest social network into a water network.
No one can survive without water. Yet nearly 800 million people do not have safe, clean water to drink, and more than 2.5 billion people live without a proper toilet. The lack of these basic necessities isn’t just inconvenient — it’s lethal. Every day, nearly 4,000 children under age five die from waterborne diseases.
Through the UNICEF Tap Project and your social network, you can help stop these needless deaths.
