A boy, a dream and a wind turbine

An encouraging story from Malawi shows that a determined individual can make a difference, even one windmill at a time. As a teenager, William Kamkwamba was determined to find a way out of poverty for his village. Today it is powered by three wind turbines, William has a best-selling autobiography - The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind - and he has been recognized around the world including by Al Gore.
