Gul Bahao has been relentlessly pursuing its research program for the last 22 years. A very useful product, the Chandi Technology has emerged after a monetary input of more than 8 crore rupees!. For the last ten years or so we have been putting up Chandi Ghars in different parts of Pakistan. Mansehra, Muzaffagarh, Thatta, Awaran, Mithi (Tharparkar) as well as in Karachi. All these together number 150 structures including halls, rooms, warehouses etc.
We are now set to address the needs of people living in mud houses. With the help of the almighty and support of civil society, we intend to directly or indirectly put up millions of Chandi Ghars - which are strong against the natural elements. Do visit our website for details.

Congratulations !. Thumping success of Chandi Ghar exhibition at Karachi Expo Center on 8-10 Jan !. Thousands acclaim “Karachi’s Gift to the World”
“Karachi’s gift to the World” a Mega Event jointly put up by Gul Bahao and the Commissioner-ate Karachi at the Karachi Press Club. The “Gift” in this case was the Chandi technology
Gul Bahao has been putting up prefabricated structures called Chandi Ghar for the last several years. The Chandi Ghar made its debut in the earthquake of 2005 in the Mansehra region.
The structure is composed of waste blocks and panaflex panels which are in turn made up of plastic, aluminium foil and cardboard residue. The structure is also portable. Its modest, humble-looking structure is transformed into one of grandeur.
The impact of the Safai mein Kamai system can be gauged from the fact that its slogan “You give us garbage, we give you gold” is a household slogan in this metropolis of more than 15 million people.
Gul Bahao’s managing trustee said that the best solution she discovered was the transparent plastic water bottle for purifying water. She said she fills these bottles up with tap water and then puts them in the sunlight for a few hours and drinks the water after cooling it.
At the entrance to the museum was the Gardens in the Air. The visitors were amazed to know that spinach,onions , cattle feed etc was being grown 20 -30 ft. Above the air in small shoppers containing manure made from municipal waste.
Nargis Latif showed the Minister, the different processes through which organic waste like vegetable and fruit peels are converted to animal feed in a clean and hygienic manner. This is finally packaged to give it a shelf life of weeks and even months
A huge water reservoir was the Centre of attraction. Again the guests were fascinated to learn that the chandi blocks were converted into swimming pools as well as household furniture.
The Gul Bahao Research Center is part of the Gul Bahao’s Complex located on a two thousand sq.yards plot on main Rashid Minhas Road. Thousands of people consisting of University students, NGOs, government officials and school going children as well as the media have visited the Research Centre
The Fuel pack is a low cost alternative fuel. It is a cheap substitute for oil and coal. Also it does not give out toxic fumes. It is easily available and can be used as fuel for thermal power stations
The Mobile Toilet is simply a Frigidaire box covered inside and outside with Panaflex. Its underlying principle is that human filth is food for plants and trees and hence it is best that people relieve themselves in unpaved land so that there is fewer burdens on the sewage system
