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

Rwanda has fertile soils, and a precipitous, humid climate, making it an ideal location for farming activities. Despite this fact, the eastern and southern provinces are heavily affected by extensive dry periods.

Muhanga district, is one of the eight that make up the southern province. To alleviate the water shortage caused by the dry spells in this district, D&S Rwanda have partnered with Living Water International to install solar pumping systems for the community. The Dayliff Sunflo 270H and Sunflo 150H solar pumps will increase water access to over 750 community members. The solar pumping systems have replaced broken down hand pumps that were time consuming to utilize as well as overly laborious. With the installation of the Dayliff Sunflo pumping systems, the community now fetches water quickly and conveniently from taps. Pictured below are D&S staffer Ildephonse Bakuramutsa and Richard Ndekezi, a representative from Living Water International, along with some community members, during the commissioning ceremony.
