S.A. Kenya Water Partnership



By Bill O'Neil

Stretching across the globe from San Antonio to Kenya--a unique partnership forms all in the name of conserving water. 

It was created through a State Department program allowing Rose Wamalwa with Kenya's Women in Water and Natural Resources to come to San Antonio, where she has been especially focused on a few different programs. 

"To empower or pass a message of water conservation to the community" Wamalwa told 550 KTSA News. She'll spend four months in the San Antonio area, shadowing the Greater Edwars Aquifer Alliance. That organization's Annalisa Peace said there are plenty of similarities between what's happening here, and the situation today in Kenya. 

"We've got the drought, and they're also suffering from drought in her country.... we've got a lot in common" Peace said.
