Changing the World One Glass at a Time is a project aimed to provide clean and safe drinking water to children in developing countries.

Therer are millions of children around the world who have no access to clean and accessible drinking water. The lack of water is the second largest killer of children under five worldwide.

Over 21 percent of children living in developing countries do not have access to clean water. That is more than one billion people, or one in five children. Eighty percent of all childhood illnesses and infant mortality is due to waterborne diseases.

From now until World Water Week, anyone can visit and donate to the Tap Project until Mar. 22.
