Water is our love language.
GRAVITY FLOW SYSTEM
ACTS builds what’s called a Gravity Flow System. They find a water spring source in the hills above the communities in need, protect the source, then build a network of pipelines, reservoirs, and accessible tap stands to give clean water to several villages. Once the system has been created, no manual labour (such as pumping water) is required. Gravity does the work for us and provides clean water for life.
Over 8.4 million people in Uganda live without access to
safe drinking water.
For mothers, this means the risk of parasites and dangerous waterborne illnesses threatening the lives of their children. For young girls, it means walking kilometers every day with heavy cans down dangerous roads instead of going to school. Water is everything: education, good health, gender equality, food security. Water is life.
