A Dream, Africa, and Bailey Jay: A Malawian teenager named William Kamkwamba taught himself how to build a windmill out of junk and bring power to his village. He then went on to build a second, larger windmill to power irrigation pumps. He did this all from books he read in the library.

And he was not prepared to wait for politicians or aid groups to do it for him. The need for action was even greater in 2002 following one of Malawi’s worst droughts, which killed thousands of people and left his family on the brink of starvation. Unable to attend school, he kept up his education by using a local library. Fascinated by science, his life changed one day when he picked up a tattered textbook and saw a picture of a windmill. Mr Kamkwamba told the BBC News website: “I was very interested when I saw the windmill could make electricity and pump water. “I thought: ‘That could be a defense against hunger. Maybe I should build one for myself’.” When not helping his family farm maize, he plugged away at his prototype, working by the light of a paraffin lamp in the evenings. But his ingenious project met blank looks in his community of about 200 people. “Many, including my mother, thought I was going crazy,” he recalls. “They had never seen a windmill before.” [x] In 2014, William Kamkwamba received his 4 year degree at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire where he was a student.

Children, Parents, and Run: Al Jazeera English e Follow AERA AJEnglish This woman has broken up 850 child marriages and banned sexual initiation camps in Malawi <p><a href="http://nyshadidntbreakit.tumblr.com/post/154395013983/destinyrush-a-hero-without-a-cape-her-name-is" class="tumblr_blog">nyshadidntbreakit</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://destinyrush.tumblr.com/post/154392884828/a-hero-without-a-cape" class="tumblr_blog">destinyrush</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>A hero without a cape</p></blockquote> <p>Her name is Theresa Kachindamoto, and she is a senior chief - political leader of a region with a population of about 900,000 people.</p> <p>She didn’t run for election; she was appointed, without her knowledge, while she was living and working in a completely different part of the country. She just received a call one day telling her to come back to her childhood home, because she was in charge now.</p> <p>So she did; and when she arrived, she discovered widespread sexual abuse of children. She browbeat 50 uncooperative local leaders into accepting her decision to annul all the marriages. She then fired four of them when they continued to allow children to be married off in their areas. She still faces widespread opposition from parents who consider it their right to sexually abuse their daughters if they want to; but Kachindamoto very evidently does not give a fuck, and is continuing to use political and legal means to protect children in the region.</p> <p>She’s not just an anonymous do-gooder; she’s an effective political leader despite incredibly difficult circumstances. Theresa Kachindamoto.</p> </blockquote>

Memes, Scare, and Soon...: Vampire Scare in Malawi Forces U.N. To Relocate lts Staff, After Vigilante "Vampire Hunters" Kill Five @balleralert Vampire Scare in Malawi Forces U.N. To Relocate Its Staff, After Vigilante “Vampire Hunters” Kill Five – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, the United Nations removed its staff from two districts in southern Malawi over vampire scares in the area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the vampire anxieties has left the region on high alert, and has sparked vigilante violence that has led to the death of five people. As a result, the United Nations announced that some of their staff has relocated in the wake of the vampire fright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although it remains unclear how many staff members have been relocated, the UN Department of Safety and Security said it would continue to monitor the situation to “ensure all affected UN staff are back in the field as soon as possible.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, lynch mobs have murdered at least five people, after accusing them of vampirism. A similar incident linked to vampire rumors sparked in Malawi back in 2002. The return of the scare is believed to have come from neighboring Mozambique, although the reason remains unclear. However, a “temporary suspension of U.N. activities in the area until the situation is normalized,” has been recommended and a night-time curfew has been imposed.
