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

Water is a precious and scarce resource- more so in Sereolipi, Samburu County. While several Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), seek to improve the quality of life in the area, it almost always comes down to access to water.

Compassion International is a children focused NGO that sponsors over 400 churches in Kenya, to empower children in poor communities. Amongst their partner churches, is the Full Gospel Church in Sereolipi, at the heart of Samburu County. The organization currently pays school fees for 300 children in this community. Whilst their need for education may be met, their greatest challenge remains access to water.

Davis and Shirtliff, through the Isiolo Branch, donated and installed a Dayliff Sunflo pumping system, replacing a broken-down hand pump in a nearby shallow well. With the donation, the church is now able to supply the local community of over 2000 people with safe drinking water. In her statement of gratitude to D&S, local social worker, Miss Peninah Lelente, pointed out that it has been months since it last rained, and the convenience of tapped water from the well has brought untold relief to the community.
