The man who built his own Powerplant

John Magiro

John Magiro Wangare, the founder of Magiro Mini Hydroelectric, brought things back to the basics and decided to create his own Powerplant.   Great Big Story,  a global media company devoted to cinematic storytelling, set out to find out more about John’s story.  The video was produced in partnership with Dangote, a leading provider of essential needs in Food and Shelter in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Fun fact!

In 2014, my younger brother James and I went out to Cameroon for 2 months to get a taste of life in Sub-Saharan Africa and understand their ways of living. We made a video too, which you can look forward to seeing in the future!
