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

Naromoru Girls Secondary School is located in the expansive Kieni East region, Nyeri County. The word Naromoru comes from the Maasai language, meaning a river with small smooth stones. True to its name, Naromoru is a town blessed with significant rainfall, and rivers that flow all year long.

For many years, the girls and staff at Naromoru Secondary School would use River Naromoru as their primary source of water. This task was tedious and time-consuming, robbing the learners of precious study hours.

In 2019, through the help of donors, a borehole was drilled and fully equipped within the school compound. Over time, however, the cost of running the borehole pump became unsustainable. The only solution was to temporarily shut down the use of the borehole and resort to their previous source of water, River Naromoru. In February of 2020, one of the school’s board members, heard about the #ImprovingLives program at Davis and Shirtliff and handed in a proposal for the Solarization of their 3kw borehole pump which was duly approved and installation was carried out. The project was officially commissioned in October 2020, to the joy of the entire school fraternity.
