Sheroe at the frontline of Climate Change in South Africa

At the heart of climate change and community driven solutions are women. Sheroes making a difference, valuable contributions and empowering women in finding solutions for themselves.

Ma Emily Tjale has been a force to be reckoned with. She herself has been exposed to devastating effects of coal mining and as such is outspoken and driven in ensuring she leaves behind a habitable planet for her grandchildren. She serves many communities, has donated her own land for community led farming initiatives. She encourages youth to get involved in community solutions serving as a Gender and Female worker for Land Access Movement of South Africa (LAMOSA), a community based organisation championing for land and agrarian rights through sustainable development. Below are a series of images showcasing her work involving youth initiatives in the village of Ntwane in Mpumalanga.

In order to meet the targets in the Paris Agreement and save the planet from climate devastation, immediately halt new coal, oil and gas development and finance a just transition towards a 100% renewable energy future for all.
