A wise man once said that the day that we stop helping each other is the day that we lose our humanity. As humans, not only are we stewards of nature and caretakers of nature – we are also responsible for each others’ welfare. We are supposed to take care of one another and be selfless – a concept that some of us might have already forgotten. However, there are still some individuals in this world that desire to promote and help other people out willingly and out of the kindness of their own hearts, and are normally in the form of monetary donations to their chosen beneficiaries and causes. And one company that has philanthropy in their core values is Stream Energy.
Stream Energy is a company that cares, and that’s the least that we can say and as a Dallas based company – they have instilled in their company’s beliefs that they should be responsible for the welfare of their community. And a strong testament to this is when Hurricane Valley ran havoc in the region of Dallas. Hurricane Harvey has poured over 56 inches of rain across the friendly neighborhoods of Dallas and the flood has caused destruction to the households of Dallas-based Americans where the typhoon has caused casualties, territorial damage and even killing a number of pets. But Stream Energy was one of the first companies to jump in the action,first to help their community. The Dallas-based community immediately donated its hard earned money from its very successful business rooted in energy provision, to fund the very first round of recovery that would help ease the recuperation phase of Hurricane Harvey’s victims. Stream Energy says its only right to help the people who have helped them build their business and helped them thrive and sustain through their tough times.
This is a testament that Stream Energy is a company that cares, and they have created “Stream Cares” – a separate entity apart from the main energy company that is focused on the company’s philanthropy and Stream Cares serves as the company’s charity foundation. They respond to their communities needs and they are focused on helping the community.

Even though he was not a renowned businessman, he was endowed the necessary entrepreneurial skills that in handy when enhancing the growth of a business. Instead of heading home after school hours were over, Hussain Sajwani would visit the family shop. While at the shop, Hussain Sajwani would get some practical experience about what it takes to run a business. The hands-on experience coupled with the lessons from his father would not go down the drain. At first, Ali Sajwani proposed that Hussain Sajwani would one day run the family shop; nevertheless, Hussain Sajwani did not concur with his father’s decision.
Eventually, Hussain Sajwani went abroad to study at the University of Washington. A government scholarship made all that possible, and he was fortunate enough to graduate with a degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics. GASCO hired Hussain Sajwani, and he was accorded the contracts manager position. The company was paying well, and Hussain Sajwani saved enough money that would help him found his first business after handing in his resignation two years later.

Hussain Sajwani never ceased to get ahold of other investment opportunities. Foreigners were now allowed to own property in Dubai, UAE as from the early 2000s. Hussain Sajwani evaluated the Dubai real estate industry and saw that it was underdeveloped. He invested a lump sum amount of money in the real estate sector by first founding DAMAC Properties. The company has significantly impacted the Dubai real estate sector by providing clients with luxurious and glitzy apartments. The company’s unique property designs were also intriguing to most clients. Despite being a corporate individual, Hussain Sajwani also engages in social accountability.
