William Kamkwamba has been having a great week in the US promoting his book 'The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind' which he co-authored with Bryan Mealer. When he was just 14 years old, William Kamkwamba built his family an electricity-generating windmill from spare parts, working from rough plans he found in a library book.


William is currently studying at  the African Leadership Academy and has started the Doers Club. He plans to develop a solar powered steam engine that can be used to power a water pump or windmill and a hand operated borehole drill based on a tobacco press. Support Williams work at Moving Windmills.
