Hilda Flavia Nakabuye, a 24-year-old Ugandan student, has been protesting in Kampala since 2017 when she realized climate change was behind the droughts affecting her grandmother's ability to grow food. Founder of Fridays For Future Uganda, Nakabuye wants to bring more racial diversity to the global climate movement and has so far convinced tens of thousands of young East Africans to join her.
