Humphrey is 26 years old. He is the first born in his family. His mother left home when Humphrey was four years old.

Chalice helps Njiru stars in Kenya establish small businessesThough his father worked hard to educate his children, he was not able to support Humphrey to further his education and so, after completing grade 12, the young boy left home in search of a job so he could help his family. That is why he travelled to Nairobi and ended up as an apprentice at a carpentry workshop - learning carpentry from a skilled employer as an apprentice.

Humphrey gained much experience in carpentry and continued to look for jobs in carpentry yards with a dream to start his own carpentry workshop. Thanks to Chalice ILEG Youth Entrepreneurship Program that provided him with entrepreneurial skills, and a shipping container that has been prefabricated to provide working space for him and other members of the group.

Humphrey has started a small carpentry workshop. However, to have a well established workshop that serves a wide range of customers, he requires a circular machine, band saw, router, drill, plane, jigsaw, hand circular, grinder, and material (plywood, fittings, other accessories). Humphrey requires Kes 369,000 or CAD $4,792.20 to establish a well-equipped carpentry workshop.

Chalice Njiru Stars helping the community in KenyaNjiru Stars support the community during COVID-19 pandemic

In this difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of Njiru Stars group have been in the forefront to help families who have been rendered jobless and are worried and anxious about what the future holds for them.

The children, who have been confined to their homes for long hours every day are restless and agitated, and this has heightened quarrels among siblings. Njiru Star members have come up with a plan to engage the children.

Across from their place of work, they have organized a playing field for the children and placed them in small groups according to their age/size. The members purchased a football for the children. Each day one group comes to the field at a particular time and when their time is up, they go back home. The mothers are happy to see their children happy and friendly toward each other.

Erick was chosen as the leader, and organizes the children. The other members check on the children to ensure they get back home safely.
