  • Description: 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. Once the system has been created, no manual labour (such as pumping water) is required. Gravity does the work for us
