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

Tumaini children’s home deals with children who were negatively impacted by the post-election violence of 2007-2008. The home offers refuge to street mothers and their nursing babies, orphans who have no place to call home and underprivileged children whose parents cannot afford to take them to school.

The home has a school that hosts both the orphans and other children from kindergarten to high school. To support the children’s University, college, polytechnic or artisan training, a donor, R.O.C.K. Bridge Ministries, sunk and equipped a mains powered borehole in the home, whose purpose was to generate income for the home. Davis and Shirtliff, through the CSR program and in partnership with R.O.C.K Bridge Ministries, have since solarized the borehole- a move that will increase the home’s income by allowing them to pump water at zero running costs. The borehole’s revenue, initially sponsored the fees for 20 children to secondary school. After Solarization of the borehole, the project is more sustainable and will impact more lives.
