The International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) is one of the leading research and capacity building organisations working on climate change and development in Bangladesh.
We recently collaborated with (ICCCAD) to document two resilience stories in the face of COVID-19. In one of the stories we have two women who were creating awareness about children’s right to education. In Maddu, a sub-county in Gomba district is Betty Zalwango a 22-year-old aspiring teacher for pre-primary and lower primary school who decided to extend education services during Covid-19 to ensure a bright future for the children.

In the other story is Namubiru Harriet Milly is a 37 year old woman residing in Katwe, Kampala, who has worked as a food vendor at USAFI market for seven years, selling fresh cowpeas and beans. Milly shares her story as single mother in search of income and wellbeing for her family during the country’s second wave of Covid-19. It is one woman’s story of building up resilience for herself and others.
