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

Lack of access to clean water is a key factor in students’ academic performance and attendance rates. Kibuye Girls is a girls’ primary day school in Kisumu County, Kenya. It sources learners from disadvantaged backgrounds such as the informal settlements of Obunga,

Manyatta Arabs, Kondelle and Kamakoha. The school approached the D&S #ImprovingLives Initiative after their water pumping system broke down rendering the borehole stalled and out of use. Davis and Shirtliff, Kisumu branch under Manager Kennedy Ojunge, replaced the 1.5kw borehole pump along with the other borehole accessories required. In a colourful ribbon cutting ceremony, the school’s principal expressed her sincere gratitude on behalf of the students and local community. The rehabilitated borehole now gives water to 800 pupils.
