DJ Man Focus : Innovating Youth Hold The Future

Posted by Monica Brasov-Curca | 14-03-2014 17:51 | Stories | Category: Developing World



Kevin is a 15 year old kid from Sierra Leon. Anyone can look at his situation and say he is:  impoverished, lacking or in need… BUT none of these actually describe him.

Kevin is a child prodigy that has made batteries, generators, a radio station and many many many more things - all from the trash. MIT Media Lab invited him to Boston to be a resident technologist.  This is his story.  It is also the the story of young people all over the world… they are part of a youth movement that can look around them and solve the problems that surround them.  Kevin is inspirational… the potential for many more young innovating Kevins is awesome.
