Pakistanis tackle energy crisis

Rural residents are setting up mini hydro-electric units to solve electricity shortages.

    After years of constant electricity shortages, Pakistanis living in rural areas decided to take the challenge of finding a solution in their own hands.

    With the help of Imran Ashraf, a European Union adviser, they started setting up mini hydro-electric units.

    There is no government involvement in the scheme and the costs are low.
