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

Only about 50 percent of Nairobi residents have direct access to piped water while the rest depend on water from kiosks, vendors, illegal connections, or boreholes.

Of those with direct access to piped water, only 40 percent receive water round the clock, with the rest having to contend with an average of 11 hours per day. The PCEA Emmanuel Church, in Kabete, ministers to a congregation of small-scale farmers and the elderly. Water has been a large problem in the region, owing mostly to poor water infrastructure. The church, on behalf of the community, applied to D&S for the donation and installation of a Dayliff borehole pump. The borehole pump now provides over 24,000 liters of water to the community daily. On a most colorful and joyous ribbon-cutting occasion, the clergy of PCEA Emmanuel Church, along with community leaders, expressed their immense gratitude to Davis & Shirtliff for the donation.
