Passion Project Role Models: William Kamkwamba
2 minute read
You may have heard of him, the child who saved his village through the use of windmills. Perhaps, you’ve even read his book or watched the film, "The Boy who Harnessed the Wind." William Kamkwamba is a leading innovator in sustainable energy, especially in regards to advancing low-income African communities and furthering their youth’s education. In this first installment of the Project Role Models series, we’ll cover how Kamkwamba built an electricity-generating windmill from spare parts at just age 14, and how you can use his story to inspire your own project!
