The boy who harnessed the wind

The absolutely amazing tale of William Kamkwamba, a poor kid from
Malawi who managed to create a wind-powered generator out of scrap
parts and the knowledge he gained from a book in a public library.

The book: http://www.amazon.com/Boy-Who-Harnessed-Wind-Electricity/dp/0061730327

His story is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.
