Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of Trees

by Franck Prévot

Wangari Maathai created the Green Belt Movement and planted native trees all around Kenya to save its forests from the destruction of progress and greedy politicians. She challenged societal constraints by becoming a political activist when women didn’t have a voice.
