A New Hope: Help Educate Asnaf Children in Indonesia
or donate via
Indonesia based Rumah Zakat distributes zakat funds to beneficiaries (Asnaf Zakat) who have dropped out of school, empower rural communities who are economically affected and whose income has severely decreased by the Covid-19 pandemic. A survey conducted by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in December 2020, found that 1 percent or around 938 children had dropped out of school due to the pandemic in Indonesia. These numbers have been shooting up ever since in 2021.
“Among all children aged 7-18 years, 88 percent are still in school, 11 percent have dropped out before the pandemic, and 1 percent of children dropping out of school as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said UNICEF’s Chief, of Education Hiroyuki Hattori as quoted by Media Indonesia.
The campaign will work to provide facilities that promote reading within the community, facilitate and nurture the development of children’s talents and hobbies as well as facilitate them to read and write the Qur’an.
Donations to this campaign aims to help 18,903 asnaf (zakat eligible) beneficiaries to get a decent education.
Let’s start with just MYR 10 and help give the gift of education to our young brothers and sisters in Indonesia.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement. And whoever helps ease a difficulty in the world, Allah will grant him ease from a difficulty in the world and in the Hereafter. And whoever covers (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will cover (his faults) for him in the world and the Hereafter. And Allah is engaged in helping the worshipper as long as the worshipper is engaged in helping his brother.” [Tirmidhi]
