Mother-of-eight Alizeta Sawadogo has spent most of her life farming and growing cereals. But climate change is having a big impact on her rural community in Burkina Faso; these days, there is less rain and longer, more intense dry seasons.

 

With your support, she now shares a two-hectare plot of land which contains four wells. Alizeta (55) has also been trained in organic farming and environmentally friendly techniques which produce enough food to feed her family all year round.
