William Kamkwamba, from Malawi, is a born inventor. Struggling to survive, 14-year-old William was forced to drop out of school because his family could not afford the $80-a-year tuition. When he was 14, he built an electricity-producing windmill from spare parts and scrap, working from rough plans he found in a library book called Using Energy and modifying them to fit his needs. The windmill he built powers four lights and two radios in his family home in Masitala Village, Wimbe. This is an inspiring story of a young man who wasn’t afraid to dream big. Who wasn’t afraid to look beyond his circumstances.
What dreams do you have? What are you going to do to see them be reality?
