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

Fiwagoh Orphanage is a rescue center that works with the Government Children’s Department and well-wishers to support and provide a haven for orphans who have been neglected, abandoned or come from situations of abject poverty.

Presently, the home hosts 312 children, from the ages of 4 – 18 years and runs a comprehensive program, offering education from kindergarten to Form Four, engaging the students on farming as well as other skills such as tailoring. The home, situated in Nakuru, was founded by Pastor Benson Nganga, who, in his early years was also a vulnerable child who lived on the streets. His life experiences influenced his zeal for children and he now works to ensure that he rescues as many children as possible from the same fate. In early 2022 the D&S #ImprovingLives Initiative supported the home in transitioning to a renewable and sustainable source of energy to run its facilities. The solar powered lighting system, running on 335W Dayliff solar panels and 200Ah solar batteries will help the school reduce its KES40,000 monthly power bill. Furthermore, the money saved will be used to meet the other needs of the vulnerable children to give them a brighter future.
