William, a 14-year –old boy  who lived in a remote village of Malawi,  Africa, is the protagonist of this story.  In William’s village there was no electricity and his family did not have enough money to pay the school fees. The school fees were not very high, just  80$  a year, but they could not afford it.

William borrowed a book from a small libray run by a charity. In the book there were some pictures of wind mills that inspired him and he decided to build a wind mill  near his house. He only had pictures to guide his work, but he was determined to do it.

People thought he was crazy when they saw him gather old parts of cars, bicycles and cutting wood but whenWilliam managed to build his wind mill they had to change their mind. He was not crazy after all! They could hear raggae music coming from a small radio that  worked thanks to the boy’s wind mill.

With the electricity generated by the wind mill, the family could listen to the radio and have a light bulb in the house. The librarian told the story to a journalist and an article appeared in a newspaper. This is how William’s story got to be known outside his village.

Willian was invited to the USA, he visited New York and wind farms in different parts of the States. He published his book, the boy who harnessed the wind and got his own web site. Now he is studying to be able to fulfill his dream, setting his own wind mill company and helping the people from his country get a better life.

      you just need to look at the previous post.
      The question is wrong, you need the auxiliary. There is also a spelling mistake in the ” Wh”word.
      And, finally, there is a punctuation mistake in the proper noun. You must use CAPITAL LETTERS.
