For Chewa-speaking children in and around Malawi

Mother Tongue Books is in the midst of publishing a bi-lingual Chichewa/ English version of William Kamkwamba’s beautifully illustrated biography “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.” This storybook tells of young William harvesting maize, playing with his friends, and building a windmill out of scraps. His windmill brought electricity to his village and his story brings hope and excitement to school children across America.

Total publishing costs are $6 per book. The books will be shipped directly from the printer to the Malawi National Library Service for distribution to schools and libraries across Malawi.
