TOM PIETRASIK/ACTIONAID Muktas mother, Shofikun, plants rice with the community in Char Harikesh, Bangladesh. PHOTO: NICOLAS AXELROD/ACTIONAID Flash floods used to happen here every four to six years. However, due to deforestation and climate change, there have been floods here for eight out of the last 10 years.

10 ActionAid schools | September 2012 | 10 Mukta and her mother Shofikun. PHOTO: NICOLAS AXELROD/ACTIONAID I feel afraid. When the floods come, our houses fall – everything collapses. Strong floods suddenly rush down the mountains and we run to the school building to take shelter. We dont have enough food. You get pains in your stomach if you cant eat.

PHOTO: NICOLAS AXELROD/ACTIONAID Father sowed the fields and mother and I helped with the weeding. After the paddy grew, we dried the crops under the sun and then sold some, but kept half for ourselves. Before, we went hungry and earning money was difficult, but now I like the harvesting season.
