Self-taught African Teen Wows M.I.T.

This kid is incredible: 15-Year-Old Kelvin Doe is an engineering whiz living in Sierra Leone who scours the trash bins for spare parts, which he uses to build batteries, generators and transmitters. Completely self-taught, Kelvin has created his own radio station where he broadcasts news and plays music under the moniker, DJ Focus. 

Kelvin became the youngest person in history to be invited to the "Visiting Practitioner's Program" at MIT. THNKR had exclusive access to Kelvin and his life-changing journey - experiencing the US for the first time, exploring incredible opportunities, contending with homesickness, and mapping out his future.

Kelvin Doe is a reminder to the world of humanity the west and the rest of the world has forgotten to help and enable. I just wonder why is the west especially USA who are Going solar big time next 4 years, not using the Aid to solar power undeveloped countries like sierra Leone.the financial aid is a mirage in Africa. You never see it.
Maybe if you approach the Aga Khan Development network,one of the largest NGO in the world whose efforts are to uplift the marginalized in developing countries.they can partner with USA to make a difference and get Kelvin the education he needs in one of their academies.
Good luck and god bless.
I am originally from east Africa.
