The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

By William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer

Recommended by Shared Interest

From Amazon: William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a country where magic ruled and modern science was mystery. It was also a land withered by drought and hunger. But William had read about windmills, and he dreamed of building one that would bring to his small village a set of luxuries that only 2 percent of Malawians could enjoy: electricity and running water. His neighbors called him misala—crazy—but William refused to let go of his dreams. With a small pile of once-forgotten science textbooks; some scrap metal, tractor parts, and bicycle halves; and an armory of curiosity and determination, he embarked on a daring plan to forge an unlikely contraption and small miracle that would change the lives around him.

I Will Try

By Legson Kayira

Recommended by Shared Interest

From Amazon: Legson Kayira was just 16-years old when he set out on his epic journey from a small rural Malawian village to the United States of America in his quest to realise his seemingly impossible dream. Walking barefoot, and carrying food for five days, an axe and two books, he travelled more than 2,500 miles through the African bush.
