Razia Yousaf is one of the brightest students in Bahawalpur, but she struggles to study in her darkened home when frequent power cuts strike.

Now the 10th-grade student has been awarded a solar-powered lamp by the Punjab provincial government in recognition of her outstanding academic performance in examinations last year. Yousaf hopes the new lamp will light the way to her goal of becoming a journalist. #Pakistan #Solar #Ujala #Renewable #Power #Energy #Climate #Mitigation #Adaptation #Fossil
