Increase in Land Productivity
PPR with collaboration of PIDS has installed a solar operated machine on an inactive tube well in village Hikmat Zara Band of district Killa Abdullah to provide 24 hours of safe drinking and agriculture water. Earlier, the people of the area were suffering from heavy load shedding and shortage of water to irrigate agricultural land.

Now, with the installation of solar system, excessive water is available that will increase the yield of fruits and vegetables by 80%, and the solar system facilitates almost 45 households to have access to safe drinking water.
