MOVING WINDMILLS: THE WILLIAM KAMKWAMBA STORY dates to 2001, when William Kamkwamba dropped out of school due to a devastating famine. Through self-education, he saw a picture of a windmill in a textbook. Using found materials, William built a windmill that powered his village and changed his life, using imagination and ingenuity to inspire a family, a village, and a nation.
