It’s our single most bountiful resource. Yet, water is a daily privilege millions take for granted. The little known truth is that lack of clean and accessible drinking water is the second largest worldwide killer of children under five.

To address this situation, a nationwide effort was launched during World Water Week called the Tap Project, a campaign that celebrates the clean and accessible tap water available as an every day privilege to millions, while helping UNICEF provide safe drinking water to children around the world.

The Tap Project
Beginning Sunday, March 16 through Saturday, March 22, 2008, restaurants invited their customers to donate a minimum of $1 or more, for the tap water they would normally get for free. For every dollar raised, a child will have clean drinking water for 40 days.

As the world’s leading children’s organization, UNICEF understands the critical role water plays in a child’s survival.

Currently, UNICEF provides access to safe water and sanitation facilities while promoting safe hygiene practices in more than 90 countries. By 2015, UNICEF’s goal is to reduce the number of people without safe water and basic sanitation by 50 percent.
