“To help with mitigating the climate crisis, I plant trees.”
Esther is a climate change champion in her area. She learned about the impacts of climate change at school, which was sponsored by Save the Children.
In recent years, she saw her house knocked down by floods while she and her family were inside. Her family lost their crops and people in her community became sick with diseases brought on by a mixture of drought and flood. Since becoming a climate change champion, she has worked with people in her community to replant trees and educate the people around her.
