Windmill builder talent from Malawi, Africa

This 6 minute video is the remarkable story of William Kamkwamba from Malawi, Africa. After dropping out of school because his family did not have enough money, William Kamkwamba built an electricity-generating windmill for his family using some spare parts. He learned to build the windmill by looking at some pictures he found in borrowed books and figuring out the rest on his own.



I became aware of the video through futureoflearning.de
