The Gift that SPARKED a Movement

When Moving Windmills’ co-founder William Kamkwamba was forced to drop out of school he remained curious and inventive. Inspired by a single photo in a textbook, William reasoned out how to build a windmill from spare parts and scrap. William’s design required a dynamo—a device that uses the movement of a machine or vehicle to produce electricity. William could not afford to buy one; his best friend Gilbert could — and did. 

Gilbert’s dynamo was the opportunity that propelled William’s talent and lead to ripples of impact: the first windmill generated electricity; the next iterations irrigated fields, saved lives, and transformed a community. From one spark of change to inspiring a generation of creative problem solvers.
