Description
"Toussant Widline, just 12 years old, was all too familiar with the impact of disasters in her community ... Toussant learned that planting trees prevents water from coming down the mountain, and that if she sees bad weather coming, she must prepare a bag with valuables and food. She also mastered how to use special equipment to measure rainfall, wind speed, temperature and humidity, and attended a summer camp where she learned about the environment through singing songs with other children."
