Meet Matuvo, a changemaker from Uganda who is passionate about addressing the issue of climate change in his community. Climate change has led to prolonged drought, destruction of houses, hunger, death of people, poverty, and many other devastating impacts.

Charcoal burning involves massive cutting down of trees, which contributes to deforestation and exacerbates the effects of climate change.
