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.
The resource centre was established to meet the challenges the community in Kongoni, Likuyani Sub-county and the environs were going through. We identified education as the key to unlocking this problem. We realized that a community library would do the magic to provide access to the dearly needed resources to empower the community.
Strategically located, it is the only one in the area serving 3 counties of Uasin Gishi, Nzoia and Kakamega. We are so thankful to our friends and partners who believed in us and offered to support us from early stage. We do not take it for granted.
