To date, Hidaya has trained over 3,500 students at Hidaya's Sewing Center and nearly 3,000 students at Hidaya's Driving School!

For an individual or a family to survive in today's competitive environment, some type of job skills training is required. Hidaya Foundation recognizes this need and encourages people to learn to help themselves. Underprivileged individuals are financially supported when attending Job Skills Training classes sponsored by Hidaya while they may learn a trade from which they can earn stable income. This type of project assists families to break out of the perpetual poverty cycle and improve their overall quality of life.


Types of Job Skills Training can include:

  • Sewing
  • Driving Lessons
  • Automobile & Tractor
  • Electrician
  • Gardening
  • Painting
  • Carpentry
  • Masonry
  • Plumbing

Women who take classes at Hidaya Sewing Center are given sewing machines upon graduating via Small Businesses for the Poor project
