The KPK government, in February, announced to solarise all primary schools in southern districts of the province. According to the announcement Department for International Development (DFID), the UK and Saudi Development Fund (SFD) told to jointly fund the project. This included an investment of around Rs 950 million to completely solarise 1,959 primary schools in following regions;

  • Dera Ismail Khan,
  • Tank,
  • Lakki Marwat,
  • Bannu,
  • Karak,
  • Kohat and,
  • Hangu.

The grant was provided under the “Improving Quality of Learning through Provision of Sustainable Renewable Energy Solutions in Primary Schools in Southern Districts of KPK, Pakistan” project.

The KPK government aims to attract more students to government schools by improving the infrastructure. Currently, most parents hesitate to send their children to government schools across Pakistan. This initiative will help transit towards sustainable energy and improvement of much-needed facilities at the government institutions.

The KPK government previously announced an initiative to upgrade the mosques in the region by providing them solar panels as well.
