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

Matuu Vision Centre is a charitable children’s institution located in Yatta, Machakos County, about a kilometre from Matuu town along Thika – Garissa highway, a semi-arid area. In the centre’s care are 347 orphans and vulnerable children, 191 boys and 156 girls. In addition, 49 students have been placed in the home’s vocational unit making a total of 396 needy children and young adults under its care.

The Centre used a solar-powered borehole pump which broke down in mid-2018. A request was then made to D&S Machakos branch who then proceeded to supply and install a replacement pump, restoring water supply to the institution.
