Due to poor infrastructure and corruption, municipalities are failing to provide adequate power in poor areas of the world.  A few years ago, Hidaya started the Green Energy project, in which we have experimented with wind and solar power at our office locations in Pakistan.


The latest efforts have been to help Hidaya Trust operations, our partner in Pakistan, become solar powered.  Our teams there regularly experiences black outs for hours, sometimes daily.  One may imagine how hard it is to run an infrastructure of 300 plus employees under such conditions. Offices being powered by the sun have greatly increased the efficiency in the Pakistan team’s productivity.


Once we find a good practical and cost effective solution to the power problems, we will like to pass it on to the masses.

 

 

Sitara-e-Isaar Awarded to Hidaya Foundation

The sister 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.

In Keeping with our commitment to the communities in which Hidaya Trust operates, it hires its work force as an equal opportunity employer.  It means that employment decisions are based on merit and business needs and not on race, color, status in the society, ancestry, sex, age, religion, creed and marital status.
