Gulisanjid Bekova lives with her family in the highland village of Roshorv in the Bartang valley. Severe climate (the village is located about 3,000 meters above the sea level) and harsh living conditions constantly put the villagers' endurance to a test. To cook meals and heat their houses Roshorv residents mostly use shrubs and scarce trees. All vegetation around the village was destroyed over the past few decades and the villagers are now facing a genuine fuel crisis. Fuel collectors now have to walk up to 10 kilometers to reach areas where teresken (a local shrub variety) can still be found.

This is why today we are not going to recount how much fuel we saved and CO2 emissions prevented but will tell you how our work changes people's lives.

People living in remote rural communities in Tajikistan face serious difficulties in access to energy sources. This is the main reason for the increased pressure on scanty natural resources in mountainous areas. The lack of access to such services as electricity supply has a negative impact on livelihoods in local communities and impairs their capacity for further development. Women and children have to bear the main burden of problems caused by energy poverty.
