TORONTOPRONTO PROFILES W&W

There are a few charities that help African communities become self-sufficient by teaching farmers sustainable farming techniques, but, as far as I’m aware, there isn’t one that teaches how to power a generator with wind. William Kamkwamba, armed with an old library book, took it upon himself to prevent him and his family falling into famine.
This truly inspirational tale also follows the aftermath: how Kamkwamba copes with the subsequent speaking tours, media attention, and being the leader of his south-east African village.
