The majority of the people Hidaya Foundation 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.
Hidaya Foundation was awarded Sitara-i-Eisaar (Star of Sacrifice) by the Government of Pakistan, in recognition of the results-oriented relief efforts during the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan.
