Karen is 10 years old. She lives with her family in the northwest region of El Salvador. Karen goes to a local youth group called the Tamarindo, where she does lots of different activities. Together the Tamarindo, the school, and the health clinic organise clean up campaigns in the area. Karen and her friends help them. Karen thinks it's really important to care for the environment. She says: "I don't throw rubbish away. It's important not to throw rubbish out of the bus, so the drainage channels are clean and so that people enjoy coming here and have a good time."
