‘The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind’ is a book that tells the story of William Kamkwamba, a 14-year-old Malawian boy who despite having no money, no materials, very little education, and no guidance or help, managed to cobble together an operating windmill to power some light bulbs, charge cell phones, and operate a village water pump. Eventually, Kamkwamba got into school, but not before he was chastised for sneaking INTO classes.
In the light of the credit crunch and environmental challenges, Kamkwamba’s story is one that inspires, that reminds us how much we have, and how much we can accomplish even in the face of tremendous adversity.
