Timothy Waithaka, 14-year-old and a Form Two student at Mowlem Secondary School is a talented young boy who has been making toys using bottle tops and wires,and selling them to take himself through school.

Well,unlike most kids of his age,Timothy has been 'hawking' the toys around Nairobi town in a bid to raise money for his school fees.
The young lad's plight was first highlighted by a random Kenyan who took to social media to ask Kenyans to support Timothy's education in whatever way they could.
