How a “crazy” mind changed the life of many others

Preparing for this week’s Globe Forum Innovation summit in Gdańsk I got touched by the story of William Kamkwamba, a Malawi secondary school student and inventor. Dropped out of school he build his own wind mill based on spare parts he found and a book he borrowed from the local library. Everybody in his neighborhood treated him like a fool, until they realized the impact of what he was doing. A young boy seemingly without any future, changed the world of many others. He made the difference. Isn’t that what it should be about in this world?

Here is a link to the book: The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope.
