MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDER
“Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.”
― Albert Einstein
At Sangha “Estidama Hub” we are driven by the belief that the state of the world is nothing, but a reflection of the state of the citizens of the world. Therefore, we are dedicated to shape a system that is fit for the human spirit. In other words, we are determined to facilitate the transition towards the adoption of a new economic system called the Wellbeing Economy. A Wellbeing Economy is an economy designed to serve people and planet, not the other way around. In a Wellbeing Economy, the rules, norms and incentives are set up to deliver quality of life and flourishing for all people, in harmony with our environment, by default.
It is important for us to realize that we cannot dream to achieve Saudi Vision 2030 and the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) or even avoid living on an unhealthy planet with unhealthy people and less prosperity; without investing in our future leaders as well as revolutionizing our outdated systems.
Hence, we are keen to equip, inform, support and encourage individuals and institutions to live and lead well and sustainable lives and initiatives. Through offering them an ecosystem that fuels, fosters and facilitates well and sustainable development in a holistic, simplified and innovative manner. One that allows them to serve their institutions, community and nation with ease and pride.
Together we can rethink the status quo, embrace new ways of thinking and actively engage in widespread systems innovation to make real progress toward a healthier and a more prosperous world.
"To solve the social, economic, and environmental challenges we face today, we need to rethink the status quo. Governments and other institutions around the world need to embrace new ways of thinking and actively engage in widespread systems innovation to make real progress toward a healthier, more prosperous world".

Studies have proven the link between emotional intelligence and career success, job performance, and improved wellbeing. It’s worth mentioning that emotional intelligence can be even more critical for certain roles in the workplace such as human resource, management and leadership roles. That being said, high levels of EQ will have a positive impact on any role.
GAP IN THE MARKET
Lack of enabling platforms that could equip, inform, support and encourage individuals and enterprises to lead well and sustainable lives and initiatives.
That is why Sangha "Estidama Hub" was born to serve our community, nation and the world in a holistic and sustainable manner. Tackling the core issues of our age rather than the symptoms.
TURNING CHALLENGES INTO OPPORTUNITIES
As Sangha "Estidama Hub" we are a platform that serves as an ecosystem to fuel, foster and facilitate well and sustainable development.
A group of people who can uplift you and support your journey
The Arabic word for sustainability
Shape a system that is fit for the human spirit.
Equip, inform, and encourage individuals and enterprises to lead well and sustainable lives and initiatives.
