UNICEF WASH: Clean Water Campaign

Clean Water Campaign

Clean Water Saves Lives

Water is life. Yet 783 million people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, and 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation.  When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill.

Across the globe, more than 3,000 children die each day from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation facilities.

Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, more than 2 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.

2011 UNICEF Tap ProjectWhen you take water, give water …

That’s the sentiment behind the 2012 UNICEF Tap project. Since its inception in 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project has raised almost $2.5 million in the U.S. and has helped provide clean water for millions of children globally.

The first program of its kind, the UNICEF Tap Project has become a dynamic movement that affords everyone the opportunity to help provide the world’s children with safe, clean water.

Whether you want to raise funds, volunteer, hold a fun Tappy Hour event or just donate the water you usually drink for free, the UNICEF Tap Project invites you to make a difference and help give a child clean water to live. 2012 UNICEF Tap Project funds will support water and sanitation programs in Togo, Cameroon, Mauritania and Vietnam.
