  • Much of Pakistan depends on agriculture for their economy and a large portion of its population consists of farmers. These farmers do not receive any subsidies and continue to stay below the poverty line generation after generation.


    Hidaya helps farmers in economically depressed areas by providing them with seeds, fertilizers, and technical know-how. In addition, Hidaya provides machinery to improve their lands and crop yield.

  • The majority of the people Hidaya helps are poor villagers who live in primitive dwellings such as mud huts without electricity.  For such people, having a few animals could be a very good way of sustaining themselves for their own personal food as well as for profit and trade.


    Poultry Farming: Five chickens and one rooster, or a flock of 25 chicks, are given to a family (feeding supplies are also provided).  It costs $50 to start a small poultry farm.


    Goat Farming: Goats are given to the poor in rural areas for milk and goat farming.  It costs $220 for a pair of goats for a family to get started.

     


Sitara-e-Isaar Awarded to Hidaya Foundation

The partner organization of Hidaya Trust, Hidaya Foundation was awarded Sitara-i-Eisaar (Star of Sacrifice) by the Government of Pakistan, in recognition of the results-oriented relief efforts of both the organizations during the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. It was awarded during a special ceremony held at the Embassy of Pakistan in Washington, DC.
