Frustration over unfulfilled promises has led the residents of Mano Dheri, a remote area in Tehsil Utmankhel of Bajaur district, to take matters into their own hands. With a population exceeding 10,000, the community faces the daily challenge of crossing a canal to access essential services in neighboring areas, including Gardi and Gaddafi, due to the absence of a bridge.

Hunar Khan, a local leader at the age of 50, highlighted the difficulties faced by the community, particularly children, women, and the elderly. During the rainy season, the rising water levels make the journey treacherous, resulting in missed school days and even tragic accidents, claiming the lives of some students.
