Mialy’s Story

Mialy says, “Climate change affects not only my life but the daily lives of everyone. There is water shortages due to the rise in temperature. Everyday, I see a line of people around a public fountain because they don’t have a water supply at home, it never used to be that bad.

The weather pattern has been disrupted. When it should rain, it doesn’t. So many people are threatened by drought and they are unable to find anything to eat because of the effects of climate change.”

Mialy works at the Arrupe Centre. It which is working towards a vision of a more equal society and enduring world environment. To achieve this, the Arrupe Centre is currently running reforestation programmes and educating people to take action to help prevent the effects of climate change.

We asked Mialy if she has noticed change from the work of the Arrupe Centre, she says, “I have seen that people have become more conscious. I think that all these activities could bring about positive change in our environment because nothing apart from awareness will make great changes. Before, I didn’t know that our small daily actions could contribute to the preservation of our common home.”

Mialy says, “I would love for Madagascar to return to a famous green island for future generations! The message that we want to get across is that if we respect the environment, we will bring benefits to our future generation. And this doesn’t depend on age, nor education – a love for the environment should exist from the youngest to the oldest in society.”
