Windmill Energy in Malawi

Tuesday, July 3, 2007

With all the crass consumerism vying for headlines today, I find a stark contrast in this teenager from rural Malawi who, at age fourteen, built a windmill from plastic scrap and an old bicycle frame that generates enough electricity to light his family's house.

See more about William Kamkwamba's story on his blog and on his Flickr photos.

THANK YOU for this inspiring link! (You always have the BEST stuff.) I've just finished reading his blog...and plan to link to it, too. What an inspiring young man.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
