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

Ushirika Children’s center is located in Kibera and has 615 pupils in both their primary and secondary schools.The school had no running water and the pupils had to bring some from home in jerricans for their use, which impacts the levels of sanitation in the premises.

The D&S #ImprovingLives Initiative has installed a solar powered DSD 3/7 well pump as well as a Klorman in-line water filter. These solutions will minimize running costs for the school and also provide the pupils with safe drinking water. This, in turn, results in increased sanitation levels and increased access to water. Mr. David Kitavi, the school Director, expressed his gratitude to D&S for “Improving the lives of the most vulnerable children in Kibera”.
