Solar panels changing villages in Sindh
An NGO called Connect – Woman and Child Welfare Organisation, has adopted Urs Mohammad Khaskheli as the first of five villages, to have all of its 65 households fitted with solar panels. Each solar panel powers two bulbs and a cell phone charger, according to the president of Connect, Talat Yasmeen.
“I can now study at my own will,” said 18-year-old Bhakhtawar. “I can teach in the morning at the village school and do my own studying at night under a light bulb”. Bakhtawar has completed her Matric and intends to go to Thatta College for Intermediate studies.
