Go without your phone to help give clean water to children in need.

Take the challenge on your cell phone at: uniceftapproject.org

UNICEF Tap Project is working to help the 768 million people around the world without access to clean water. This year you can help by taking a challenge to give up access to something far less vital than water–your cell phone.

Thanks for your support during World Water Month. Together people have gone over 200 million minutes without their phones to help children in need of clean water. Time donations are now inactive, but you can still go without your phone and donate to support the UNICEF Tap Project.

UNICEF Provides More
Than Just Clean Water

The UNICEF Tap Project is a nationwide campaign that provides clean water and adequate sanitation to children around the world. Currently, UNICEF works in more than 100 countries around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities and to promote safe hygiene practices.

Projects include urgent care in the Philippines where UNICEF so far has provided water kits, water treatment products, portable toilets, and hygiene kits to hundreds of thousands of people in need.
