D&S staff pose with parents of Isinya School for the Deaf

The deaf too, deserve to be heard. When Marit Kolstradbraten, a simple woman from Norway, first came to Kenya, she was moved by the plight of the deaf children in the country.

10 years after deciding to start works all over Kenya to assist the deaf, her organization, Deaf Aid, was recognized by the United Nations as an organization doing “Significant International Humanitarian Work”. Earlier this year, Davis and Shirtliff, under the CSR program, partnered with Deaf Aid, to ensure a sanitary and sustainable environment for the Isinya School for the Deaf. The partnership saw to the Solarization of the school’s borehole pump as well as the installation of a solar lighting system to light the school’s classes, dorms and staff facilities. During the handing over ceremony, the Isinya Sub-County Director for Education encouraged the learners to work hard and be the best they can be despite the challenges that life has thrown at them. The handing over ceremony was attended by parents, learners, teaching staff, Kaputiei-North MCA, Isinya Sub-County Director of Education and D&S staff.
