BANDUNG. ZIS Indosat continues to provide trust and synergize with Rumah Zakat through the Empowered Village program. This year, ZIS Indosat added 12 empowered villages in 6 provinces in Indonesia. In the previous year, ZIS Indosat had synergized with Rumah Zakat in the same program in 15 villages. So until this year there are 27 empowered villages that are assisted by Rumah Zakat.
This shows the progressiveness of ZIS indosat trust in Rumah Zakat. This empowered village program is one of the main offerings for managing zakat, infaq and charity funds from the Rumah Zakat productively. The empowered village assisted by ZIS Indosat spreads in Bandar Lampung, Central Java, South Kalimantan, South Sulawesi,Riau, and Yogyakarta.
One reason presented by Wakhid, Chair of ZIS Indosat, choosing Rumah Zakat empowerment program was to benefit from the reach of this program for rural communities.
“We will continue to work on this Collaborative Village program because the value of its benefits to the community, especially in rural areas, is very much felt”, said Wakhid on the sidelines of the signing of the MoU with Rumah Zakat for this 2019 Village-based program.
