The Climate Crisis

From wildfires destroying homes and livelihoods, to cyclones, droughts and floods devastating the lives of children in Mozambique, Nepal and Bangladesh, the world faces new climate challenges that require innovative responses. It’s the most vulnerable communities who are on the frontline of this crisis, and women and girls are the worst affected along with other marginalized groups. As a consequence of disaster, girls are often taken out of school and sent to work or even forced into marriage. Sadly, girls are also more likely to die in climate and weather related disasters.

Take Chiang Rai in Thailand, for example. The area has experienced some of the worst impacts of the climate crisis with floods, landslides, forest fires and droughts. But thanks to amazing child sponsors like you, bright and determined girls are discovering innovative ways to tackle the big issues.

Poppy and View live in this area of Thailand and have been part of a Plan International programme to promote innovative learning for disaster risk reduction. Encouraging girls, and those from disadvantaged groups to learn new skills and innovate solutions to local problems.

Building Resilient Communities

View, 14, dreams of being an engineer so she can build more resilient communities that will withstand the challenges posed by the climate crisis. Thanks to sponsors like you, she’s been attending lessons in computer programming.

“My inspiration is to invent new things and use them to solve problems in schools. I want to be an engineer because I want to design and construct safer and stronger buildings.”

It’s thanks to sponsors like you that children in countries most vulnerable to the climate crisis can learn new skills, and pioneer solutions that will tackle the biggest issue our planet faces, building a more resilient future for themselves and their communities.
