Moving Windmills: The William Kamkwamba Story

If you are ever stuck thinking that you don’t have the tools or resources to be innovative, think again!   At the age of 14, Malawian William Kamkwamba Malawan created a functioning wind turbine after merely seeing an image of one!  Inspired by the dream of providing his family with electricity and a water pump, William’s story is incredible, inspiring, and has almost brought me to tears this evening.  Enjoy the video, and when you realize you must know more of this fascinating story, buy the book here.

  3. p.s. Taters we REALLY missed you at Cardo’s going away party 🙂 He danced with me ALL NIGHT LONG at Harry T’s LOL! Check out my blog for pics 🙂

  4. A lot of people could learn from what he did. You don’t wait for stuff to happen, you make it happen. If more people got down and dirty with what they want to happen we would live in a better world.
