Would you pay for tap water if it made a difference to children in Togo, Vietnam, Mauritania, and Cameroon?

By participating in the UNICEF Tap Project, you support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.

What is the Tap Project?
In 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple, tangible and easy-to-implement concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.

How can I support the Tap Project?

When is the Tap Project?

The UNICEF Tap Project takes place each year during the week that includes March 22: UN World Water Day.

Why is the Tap Project needed?

UNICEF reports:

  • Every day 4,100 children die of water-related diseases.
  • Nearly 900 million people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.  Almost half of them are children. 
  • Just $1 raised through the UNICEF Tap Project can provide a child with safe water for 40 days.
  • The simple act of washing a child’s face with clean water can prevent debilitating diseases—like blinding trachoma, an infectious eye disease that spreads from child to child. The world’s leading cause of preventable blindness, blinding trachoma is endemic in 57 countries, with 1.2 billion people living in trachoma-endemic areas, primarily in the poorest communities in the developing world—meaning millions of children without access to clean water are at risk of becoming blind from trachoma.

Plan now to participate in the Tap Project and share clean water with God’s children.

You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide the people with grain, for so you have prepared it. You water its furrows abundantly, settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and blessing its growth.

Psalm 65:9-10
