Kelvin Doe is an exceptional fifteen year old teenager from Sierra-Leone.  He is naturally an innovator who dumpster dives to find electronic parts.  He makes a number of products such as batteries, generators, and his own FM transmitter all from trash items he found in local dustbins.

He’s also a local dj who goes by the name DJ Focus.  He broadcast his dj channel on an FM station which he manages.  He is not formally educated.  He’s learned and created his inventions by reverse engineering devices and understanding how each component works.

Kelvin’s ingenuity has impressed colleges in the USA specifically M.I.T., who followed his journey to America in attendance of the “Visiting Practitioner’s Program” at MIT. THNKR.

To donate to this cause and support Kelvin as well as other’s following his footsteps consider donating to Innovate Salone.
