Paolo lives in Lima, the second driest capital city in the world.

Climate change is hitting the city hard, with predictions that Lima could run out of drinking water in less than 20 years. CAFOD is supporting local experts to work with Paolo and other young people to raise awareness about these issues.

High in the steep hillside at the edge of the city, Paolo and other volunteers are building vital staircases, enabling their neighbours to reach their homes in safety, and escape quickly in the event of a landslide, earthquake or fire.

Paolo is changing the future of his community.
