Stories of Young Girls Struggling Against Climate Change

This is the tale of four girls whose lives are being torn apart by climate change and the impacts of El Niño.

Two of them live in a world of water.

The other two are desperate for the rains to come.

Flooding is causing Amina, 12, and Aasia, 10, in Bangladesh to go hungry.

In Somaliland, teenagers Nimah and Hibak struggle to eat because drought is killing livestock and harvests.

Despite living thousands of miles apart they are grappling with the same devastating impacts of extreme weather.

But young women living on the margins face risks that go beyond hunger.
