Mission:
Our mission is to enable and empower communities to be independent by facilitating equitable access to opportunities through economic development, education and skills development, supporting people with special needs, and providing emergency relief and social welfare.

Hashoo Foundation USA (HF USA) works locally to raise awareness, raise funds and promote intercultural understanding and best practices as it builds partnerships with other individuals, non-profit, and professional organizations to support the foundation’s projects in Pakistan.

We envisage an ethical, equitable, inclusive and progressive society in which people live with dignity and have power over their own lives.  We achieve this by creating opportunities for vulnerable communities to be economically independent and to improve their quality of life.

HF USA main focus is the Women's Empowerment through Honey Bee Farming Project - “Plan Bee”. The project creates jobs opportunities and generates a sustainable source of income through the sale of high-quality honey. The project addresses the discrepancy between the income earned by male and female beekeepers by educating the women in beekeeping and linking them to profitable markets. Furthermore, the project improves the status of women in their communities, as they become more integrated in the decision-making process within male-dominated societies.

- Trained 312 women in beekeeping

- Benefiting 1200 dependants

- Increased household income by 32%

- Produced more than 25% tons of honey

- Honey sold in 10 five star hotels in Pakistan

- Honey sold in small quantities in super stores such as D. Watson, Shaheen and a chain of CSD stores (99 stores in Pakistan)
