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.

Real life Tony Stark. I’m really happy that we have such people in this world and I hope you will reach your goals. This video really made me cry in the end. Let’s try to improve our world all together!
Be creative and inspiring just because you want to live like the rest , make your world better , help people to feel better . No money out of it , just “survival” . So happy to see that there are still ppl who actually are humans with the whole terminology of the world .
I believe all children have prodigy-like skill hidden within in them but rarely does it get noticed or facilitated early in life. School comes first in our society but schools don’t give a shit about your individuality, it doesn’t give a shit about your weaknesses, it drills you until you can show the teacher at least a 5/10. We call this education, if we stopped putting kids in factory like environments of knowledge and observed them from their youth we would change the world for good.
