Elphas was born in Kakamega County – Western Kenya where he attended his basic education before moving to Nairobi for his higher education. His early upbringing and experience made him understand the challenges the community is going through. His interest in the tourism industry saw him pursue professional training at Kenya Utalii College in Tour Guiding and Administration. Elphas has worked with major tour companies in different capacities and departments but mainly in customer care service. As a customer service expert, he has accompanied groups and families all over the country and outside Kenya on both holiday and humanitarian engagements. Such groups include Millennium Development Goals, Millennium Promise, World Vision and many others. His passion for service encouraged him to partner with friends to co-found Africa Untamed Wilderness Adventures and Akhonya Development Community Based Organization (A-CBO). His dream is to partner with friends to empower and impact the community.
Kongoni Community Library is partnering with some schools around the country to to help their students improve in their academic and non-academic programs. The schools are represented in Kakamega, Uasin Gishu, Vihiga and Kajiado counties and they are supported with computers/laptops and also connected to unlimited internet services. They are also supported with sports equipment(mainly Baseball), curricullum revision books and story books written by local writers for their Book Clubs to improve their reading culture. We also help to improve on the state of their libraries by trhough rennovations and equiping them with other general books. This is made possible courtesy of Michael and Karen Schley Foundation.
