Storyteller's Paradise

This is 11-year-old Keya's story. She's already experiencing the effects of climate change on her river island in Bangladesh. During the last flood, Keya's family spent over one month living on a raised platform the size of a double bed, whilst their home was under feet of water.

"There was so much water; it was up to our knees. We couldn't get out, even if we wanted to. Our parents wouldn't let us out – what if we fell in the water? My youngest brother was being naughty and fell down, but my mother found him. I don't feel good about the floods. I can't study, I can't play, I can't go to school. I just have to sit at home and stay idle."
