The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind




                   
By William Kamkwamba
When fourteen-year-old William Kamkwamba's Malawi villae was hit by a droubt, everyon's crops began to fail. Without enough money for food, let alone school, William spent his days in the library... and figured out how to bring electricity to his village. Persevering against the odds, William built a functioning windmill out of junkyard scraps, and thus became the local hero who harnessed the wind.
