“4 years ago a young African from a small village (Mastala) in Malawi did a remarkable thing. William Kamkwamba couldn’t afford to go to school, but after deciding to read books on windmills and educate himself. At the age of 14 he made a wind mill to generate electricity in a village that desperately needed it. You can do anything if you only try.”
