It will be a switch mode supply using the 555 as a crude Pulsewidth Modulator (PWM). If you look on Google you will probably find quite a few schematics of this kind.

Better though would be to build a switch mode supply on a better chipset, if chips are difficult to get in your country look to the TL494 as they are common in PC power supplies (I have several of them from otherwise dead PC psu's )

The 3842 / 3843 family is available from lots of manufacturers all over the world at low cost. It's a very easy chip to use with plenty of helpful app-notes, and ideal for stepping 12V up to 25v.
