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


Moi Girls Isinya is a secondary school in Kajiado County, Kenya. The institution had a borehole equipped with an electric pump.

It has been receiving high electricity bills associated with the pumping system, which heavily strained its budget. The school pumps water for its own consumption and sells about 300,000 liters per month to the locals at the subsidized price of KES 0.25 per litre. The D&S Solar Department has successfully solarized the 7.5kW borehole pump, enabling the pumping system to run on zero costs and in turn to be a self-sustaining project. Through the #ImprovingLives Initiative, the project was partially sponsored, with the school contributing only a portion of the costs as its contribution. This project will enable the school to pump water even for agricultural use and the school greening program. The cost of water per litre to the locals will also go down. Most importantly, the 1200 students at the school will be direct beneficiaries of the project.
