Thirty-four-year old Sarah Hashwani is the youngest of five siblings born to business tycoon Sadruddin Hashwani. By the time she was born, there was probably not a trace of the humble beginnings her father - now owner of the prestigious Hashoo Group that has interests in tourism, real estate, pharmaceuticals, IT, and oil and gas - had grown up in. But that hasn't made her any less empathetic towards the less fortunate.
"I've always been inclined to philanthropy since I was a young girl," says the Islamabad-born expat, who chairs the humanitarian wing of her father's multimillion-dollar empire, the Hashoo Foundation. Mr Hashwani - whose own story, of going from sleeping in the back of trucks in the cold, snake-infested deserts of Baluchistan to now owning a brand of luxury hotels, among other businesses, is highly inspirational - started the foundation in 1988. Sarah only took over in 2007, but she'd, nonetheless, been involved in various projects in the years leading up to the takeover. What she doesn't like is calling it philanthropy. "It's just a central part of practising our faith of Islam," she believes.
When it first began, the foundation was mostly working in the "charitable" area - responding to various requests and donating funds. They started with supporting Afghani refugees in Pakistan, says Sarah.
For those who want to help but don't know where to begin, Sarah suggests the Pakistan Center for Philanthropy ( "The PCP was set up by the Aga Khan Foundation in Pakistan, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. They have certified 232 NGOs through a very rigorous process, so you can rest assured that these organisations are appropriate to donate to and collaborate with. As for any youngsters looking to help, they can get in touch with me," she offers. "I would be happy to discuss their options."
The burden for empowering the youth is one she shares with her father.
