Giving back to local communities has been a commitment of Davis & Shirtliff since its founding in 1946...

Kanzinwa 1

Kitui has a low-lying topography and the climate of the county is arid and semi-arid with very erratic and unreliable rainfall. Due to the limited rainfall received, surface water sources are very scarce. The major sources of water in the county are seasonal rivers that form during the rainy seasons and dry up immediately after.

Africa Inland Church Kanzinwa, is located in Kitui County, Mumoni sub-county. The church is currently supporting 372 needy children from within the local community. They also have a private school within the church - A.I.C Kanziwa Academy.

On the 1st of October, the church logged in their application for CSR support through the D&S online CSR portal that is on the D&S public website. In response to this application, D&S Kitui installed a Sunflo solar pumping system, ensuring access to clean potable water, all year round.

Remarkable impact has been witnessed since installation of the solar powered Sunflo pump. The church has since planted 10,630 trees, built a water kiosk just outside their compound that serves 1200 members of the community, and the improved levels of hygiene is evident in the reduced cases of water-borne diseases. The church has since come back to Davis and Shirtliff, to give their heartfelt appreciation, and to share with us the story of their success.
