While studying in an American high school, one Kenyan man attempts to raise money for his village back home by selling custom-made bowties.
Tobias O’Kongo’s relationship with bowties started when he studied at a high school in Syracuse, New York. He hadn’t seen them before his journey to America, and when he first saw them, he thought they were cool.
Kids in his school started to see Toby with his bowties, and wanted to join the fashion trend. Realizing a new potential, Toby decides to sell bowties made by the women of his village to raise money for his community back in Kenya.
