SCHADUF IN A NUTSHELL
The word "schaduf" refers to an ancient irrigation tool that lifts water to irrigation canals. In our case, we lift water, sunshine, and life to barren concrete walls and roofs. Schaduf aims to provide inspired urban green solutions that elevate the quality of life through environmental and social change.
A STORY OF COMMUNITY IMPACT:
WE EMPOWER OUR COMMUNITY BY CREATING ROOF FARMS AND SELLING SUSTAINABLE CROPS.
A STORY OF CORPORATE IMPACT:
WE EMBRACE THE GOODNESS NATURE OFFERS TO TRANSFORM THE URBAN LANDSCAPE.
Schaduf was founded by two brothers, Sherif and Tarek Hosny, after volunteering on a farm in Louisiana in December 2010. They have always been interested in plants and their curiosity about nature led them to trips to Ethiopia and Rwanda. Noticing the huge impact the river Nile has on both those two countries they quickly realized that Africa and the Middle East's futures will rest on their ability to preserve water and other natural resources.
What started with a small scale rooftop farming endeavor has quickly evolved into a major design and technology hub with innovations in landscape architecture, farming, vertical gardening, and a variety of sustainability driven products and services across the Middle East and Africa. We are constantly pushing the boundaries of life sciences, engineering and art to cater to the needs of our customers and their well-being.
