Give a kid water by NOT using your phone

Thanks for your support during World Water Month. More than 2.5 million people went nearly 250 million minutes without their phones to help children in need of clean water!

Why 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 $1, UNICEF can give one child safe drinking water for 40 days. Currently, UNICEF works in more than 100 countries to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities and to promote safe hygiene practices. Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, more than 2.1 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.
