David Nderitu, a formerly homeless teen makes jewelry from waste computer and cell-phone parts. He manages to make 60 pairs of earrings from the scrap materials in about 15 days. David Nderitu according to Kenya's Daily Nation says his venture into the profit-making jewelry business can be attributed to motivational speakers who always visited the Children, Youth Empowerment Center in Nyeri County.
The Children, Youth Empowerment Center provides educational and social services to former street-dwelling children of Kenya with the goal of teaching the children a trade that they can use to support themselves.
When Owen Reitenauer spent two weeks volunteering at the Children and Youth Empowerment Center, it was a life-changing experience, not just him but also for David. During his visit in June 2010, Reitenauer made an important decision, to sponsor David’s education.
