The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind - Movie

 2019. True story of William Kamkwamba who grew up in famine ridden Malawi and builds a windmill out of salvaged parts and his father's bicycle despite being thrown out of school for his inability to pay fees. William's windmill works and they are able to pump water and grow a crop. He gets a scholarship and then graduates from Dartmouth College in the USA. Lots of insights into life in famine ridden areas, food riots and associated dangers. And then, a story like this. Life is wonderful.
