The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind

William Kamkwamba was a young boy from Malawi with a vision of a better future.  In Malawi, they face a lack of water and drought everyday. Then William read a book - Using Energy - that inspired him to find a way to build a windmill. He believed that a windmill would bring electricity and water to his devastated village.

William eventually did build this windmill - his "magetsi a mphepo" - from discarded things he found. Now, he is a student at Dartmouth University in the USA.

Please read William's book - The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind. It is >now available to read online.
