Clean Water: Kicuzi / Clean water systems for Uganda

Clean Water: Kicuzi
Clean Water: Kicuzi
Clean Water: Kicuzi

Without easy access to clean water, children are kept at home to help their mothers haul water from polluted sources. The youth who do manage to get to school often miss long stretches due to diseases like typhoid and diarrhea. Constant sickness can drastically affect their performance in class, but it’s a choice between that and dehydration

At ACTS we build what’s called a Gravity Flow System. We 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. No manual labour required, only gravity.
