Earon (left) is helping to give her community the strength to survive when disaster strikes. She heads up her local disaster-preparedness team, visiting households to warn them about flooding and making sure they have everything they need to stay safe. Earon left school at 11 to marry, and used to be painfully shy. But her role helping others has given her confidence – and the respect of the neighbourhood. No wonder Razia looks so proud of her mum.
