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

Hearing loss can affect speech and language skills. Hearing problems also mean that the areas of the brain used for communication may not develop as they should.

Understanding and speaking are difficult for hearing impaired individuals. Parents of deaf or hearing-impaired children often face frustration and stigmatization by society making it difficult for children to integrate with their peers. Largely due to the stigma, only 10% of the over 800,000 deaf children in Kenya are in school.  Kaaga School For the Deaf, is one of the 120 schools for the deaf in the country, a public primary school in Mulathankari, Meru County. The boarding school is run by a religious organization and has a little over 100 learners. The schools aim to not just offer education for their students, but an improved quality of life as well. In partnership with a US-based Missionary, the D&S #ImprovingLives Initiative has donated a Dayliff 10" Triple UV Purifier. The purifier will go a long way in improving the quality of life for the students.
