The William Kamkwamba Story:

"We have enough wind in Malawi,
and I was thinking.."

Before you read further, watch this:

Also see his talk at the TED Conference:

A few books, a handful of hope and people like William is the change that our Africa is so thirsty for.

At 14 years old he went to a library, picked up a book and in two months, changed his family's lives. He built a windmill. From scraps.

Then he changed his village.

Then came a news article, an invitation to the new African Leadership Academy, a flight to America, and then an invitation to speak at the Ted Conference. Then came a book, a documentary.. and the story became a movement. So inspiring!
