Kelvin Doe was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone in 1996. His creative instincts have been with him as a child and he would often dream of solutions to problems in his community.
At the age of 10, he started scavenging for scrap electronics parts from dump sites after school for his inventions. Kelvin, together with his team, was a winner of Global Minimum’s Innovate Salone 2012 — the inaugural high school innovation challenge in Sierra Leone.
He had built a radio station for his community out of recycled materials, in addition to homemade batteries and a generator. Kelvin was selected to travel to the U.S. in 2012, where he was invited to speak at the “Meet the Young Makers” panel at the World Maker Faire 2012 in New York.
What an amazing talented young boy.
