An Intelligent Boy

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Narok, Kenya
Map of AN INTELLIGENT BOY Narok is an area which is believed to be interior and the residents are not much educated but this scenario was ironically. Here came up a boy who had good scenery for himself and he wanted to benefit the community and some how the whole nation.Through his skills he went on collecting cans which he used to gather together with some wires and a lot of funny materials.Using all of this he managed to make an electric bell which he installed in his homestead. The explanation he was giving is that the bell could sense any danger or stranger around the homestead,had someone gone near their home in odd hours the alarm could sense and it could itself ring.The government saws this and even heard it through the media and deiced to go visit the boy and wondered even how the boy was more creative. The boy was given a scholarship to the UK to study and expand his ideas.Up to date the boy is in UK due to his creativity. Read more.
