The boy who harnessed the wind

The boy who harnessed the wind

O rapaz que domou o vento, em português o título do livro é “O rapaz que prendeu o vento”, é um livro a não perder, especialmente para quem gosta de lições de vida inspiradoras. O jornalista Bryan Mealer transpôs uma história de um pequeno rapaz que nasceu no Malaui, no continente africano, que com a sua tenacidade perseverante nunca desistiu do seu sonho: dar uma vida melhor à sua família construindo um moinho de vento para gerar eletricidade capaz de bombear água de um poço para regar os campos. Tudo isto com a ideia que, se conseguisse gerar eletricidade através desse moinho de vento, a sua família nunca mais iria ter de passar fome.

 Através deste sonho, e da sua concretização, William Kamkwamba conta-nos a sua vida e o quanto é difícil viver num país onde as necessidades básicas são um luxo.  Kamkwamba fez algo impressionante, apesar de ter de abandonar a escola porque os seus pais já não lhe conseguiam pagar os estudos, ele não desistiu de estudar, e de lutar pela sua paixão: o conhecimento. Numa biblioteca humanitária local, ele descobriu que moinhos de vento poderiam produzir eletricidade e isso deu-lhe uma causa para. Apesar de todos pensarem que William estava louco, ele continuou a construir o seu moinho de vento, com apenas lixo.

O sonho desta criança tornou-se numa realidade maior do que ela podia ter idealizado: hoje em dia está a terminar os seus estudos na faculdade de Joanesburgo na África do Sul. Depois de ter sido inicialmente convidado para orar numa das mais conceituadas conferências, a TED, tendo já visitado os Estados Unidos, ido a programas de TV, sido capa do Wall Street Journal e escrito este fabuloso livro, os seus feitos são notáveis. Toda esta história comprova que o meio ambiente não é por si só capaz de moldar o nosso destino.
