Statement of purpose

It is the implementer of renewable energy projects as well as the facilitator of community participation. AKRSP has, since 1991, completed more than 200 micro & mini Hydropower schemes.

As an internee, I visited the remote areas of Chitral and realized that I have to choose this field as a career because living in 21st century and having huge potentials of renewable energy resources, people in this part of the world are still deprived of the basic needs of life. Among those clean source of energy is one.
During my field work I faced many issues regarding sustainable energy and
