PEKANBARU. This year, Al-Azhar Syifa Budi Pekanbaru II collaborates with RZ Pekanbaru in the implementation of humanitarian program named “Syifa Budi Berbagi”. This program is initiated to invite the students, parents, and teachers for sharing with others through Zakat, Infaq, and Shadaqa.
In addition, Al-Azhar Syifa Budi Pekanbaru II has also several useful programs for the students such as Sharing with Friends, Gift for Teachers, and Let’s Rise and Shine. Kurtubi, the school principle, said that the programs are responded well by the students and parents. It can be seen from the improvement of collected fund day by day.
Kurtubi claimed that Al-Azhar Syifa Budi Pekanbaru II used to cooperate with local zakat institution. Considering that RZ has a wide network across the regions and countries, the school management suggested him to collaborate with RZ. “RZ is well-known for its accountability and professionalism and it has a wide network,” he said.
“Cooperating with Al-Azhar Syifa Budi Pekanbaru II is a good thing. So far we rarely find a school that facilitates its students to sharing with the needy continuously; hopefully it can inspire other schools,” Resi Hartanti, Branch Manager of RZ Pekanbaru, said.***
