William Kamkwamba is a remarkable young man from Wimbe, a small rural village in Malawi, Africa. In late 2001, while his family was battling life-threatening famine, 14-year-old William was forced to drop out of high school due to lack of school fees ($75 USD per year). Rather than accept this fate, William educated himself by borrowing books from a small community library and ended up helping to power his entire community by building his own windmill.
