In partnership with Well Aware, a non-profit organisation with headquarters in Austin Texas D&S supplied and installed a complete solar powered borehole pumping system in Laikipia to serve a community that had gone without access to clean water for years after a windmill system failed
. Well Aware drilled the borehole and D&S supplied and installed the equipment. In a colourful handover ceremony the local chief narrated how dire the situation was before the intervention, with many forced to abandon their homes and relocate to areas with access to water. The pmup serves a primary school, a dispensary and the local community.
