Clean water and Renewable Energy for IDPs in Bannu

The launching of the military operation Zarb-e-Azab in North Waziristan on 15 June, 2014 resulted in the fleeing of hundreds of thousands of people of North Waziristan with majority into the parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and rest of Pakistan. These internally displaced People (IDPs) were faced with numerous problems and challenges and coping with heat and power shortages especially in Bannu in the summers where IDPs were mostly concentrated was the biggest challenge for everyone.


Considering the poor situation of electricity in the country, PAWT provided solar powered lightning to cope with power outages and water scarcity for the IDPs of North Waziristan living in Bannu. The project focused on identification of various places inside Bannu where solar powered street lights have been installed benefiting IDPs and host community. The lights are being installed in camps, hospitals and area of high concentration of IDPs. The systems have been installed at the following locations:


•  Solar Power Generation System for the Combined Military Hospital-CMH Bannu:


•  Solar Water Pump for IDPs and host community in Bannu


•  Three schools in Bannu
