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

There are 262 water projects in Kenya, 70% of which are initiated by local communities. Run by ‘water committees’ that comprise of community members, they supply rural Kenya with most of its water. Despite their great success in increasing water access, community water projects often struggle to be self-sustainable.

The Davis & Shirtliff #ImprovingLives Initiative, through the Humanitarian Sales department, has partnered with Nzueni Self Help Group, to ensure the sustainability of Nzueni Community Borehole Project. Davis and Shirtliff donated and installed a borehole pumping system in Nzueni, ensuring community participation in order to promote project ownership. The Dayliff borehole pump now supplies water to over 5000 community members. In her vote of thanks to Davis & Shirtliff, the area chief applauded the firm for both its community involvement and establishment of the new Davis & Shirtliff Wote Branch.
