UNICEF’s “Project Tap” & ‘smell the box’ soap drive!

By January 27, 2015GIN & Clubs, Green

The month of January has been dedicated to water, sanitation, and hygiene for the Unicef Club. Recognising the large number of people in developing nations (including those neighbouring Hong Kong) who have a lack of access to clean water, we have decided to continue Project Tap for the second year now. Project Tap consists of water fountains on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th floors being switched off in order to raise awareness about the lack of access to clean water. We hope that when people had to walk an extra floor in order to obtain water, they were able to think about those who have to travel miles on foot daily in order to access water that isn’t even necessarily safe to drink. In addition to Project Tap, we are also hosting our first annual soap drive this week! There are donation boxes on the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th floors for everyone to donate any used or unused bars of soap. We will be donating this soap to the local organisation that recycles soaps, in order to deliver them to developing nations. This small action of donating a bar of soap can help prevent a family from a multitude of diseases, many of which are deadly. Hopefully as a school community, we can help take a step forward in ensuring that water and sanitation are seen as basic rights rather than privileges.
