This 15-minute film follows two community leaders who hold a powerful vision of finding solutions to problems that involve both climate change and gender inequity in Mwenezi District, Zimbabwe. Women in Zimbabwe are deeply affected by climate change but have little power in their culture to address it. Tariro Cynthia Mutsindikwa, an engineer, and Caroline Pugeni, a project manager, are working together to empower women with clean energy equipment and knowledge – one fuel-efficient stove at a time.
