Most regions of Uganda, apart from the dry area in the north, have an annual rainfall of between 1,000mm and 1,500mm. With the heavy rains coming between March and May and between September and November. Such rains are very crucial in providing safe rain water to public institutions like schools and health centres that often struggle to access clean water.
However, they always find it very challenging to acquire large containers to collect the water. Over the years PaCT has therefore worked with individuals and institutions from around the globe to provide over 150 plastic water tanks to different institutions as a strategy of preserving clean and safe water to be used during the dry spell.
