Climate Change in Education

In arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) like Tana River, climate change is making water and energy increasing difficult to access. And when children have to spend their time traveling longer and longer distances to fetch water and firewood, they miss valuable school days. But with the right resources and education, students can take an active role in creating a cleaner, more sustainable future for their communities. This year, we worked with UK Aid to address environmental issues that impact school attendance and health in 40 public primary schools.
