In a different life, Elijah might have stayed in his home village, working as a digger or a motorcycle driver. In this one, however, he made the move to Nairobi in hopes of better supporting his family - 1 brother and 3 sisters, and fell upon jewelry making by chance. Today, Elijah has grown to love the work as a way to exercise his creative muscles while making an income.
