2010 UNICEF Tap Project Launches to Help Provide Safe Water to Children Worldwide
Date:3/11/2010

There are nearly 3,600 UNICEF Tap Project volunteers registered to date.  Critical to the success of the campaign, these volunteers are engaged nationally in activities such as restaurant recruitment and for the first year ever, they have expanded their efforts to include grassroots activities and events, such as "Tap at Night", benefit concerts, community-based water walks, and creating their own events.  All proceeds raised by this corps of volunteers will benefit the UNICEF Tap Project.  

Approximately 900 million people worldwide lack access to clean water and nearly half of those people are children.  Young children are the first to get sick and die from waterborne and sanitation-related illnesses including diarrheal diseases and malaria.  

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. Over the past 15 years, more than a billion people gained access to improved drinking water and sanitation facilities thanks to UNICEF's efforts.  Every day, 24,000 children die of preventable causes, and UNICEF is committed to doing whatever it takes to make that number zero. With $1, UNICEF can provide one child access to safe, clean water for 40 days.
