To train the AMREF and other Kenyan WASH Alliance (KWA) members in their efforts to provide
sustainable water access a Knowledge Exchange mission was carried out. This mission is part of the SUSWA (Scale up of Sustainable Water Access) project by WML, Aqua for All and AMREF.

During this Knowledge Exchange mission SamSamWater gave a training on using Google Earth, GIS tools and GPS functionality for water projects. The participants were trained in using Google Earth and other tools to prepare for field visits and siting of 3R water projects. Furthermore the participants were trained in using GPS apps on their Android smartphones to measure and collect data in the field.

All participants were enthusiastic about the possibilities of these tools in making their work more efficient. The mission report and links to all the websites and Android apps can be found here:
