The Centre for Management of Waqf, Zakat and Endowmen(WAZAN), Universiti Putra Malaysia(UPM) has provided a channel to contribute the donations other than the facilities of waqf and zakat which is called as UPM cares@WAZAN. This fund is introduced to open up a more space for donors who wishing to contribute directly to those in need such as UPM’s asnaf students through the WAZAN Cares Scheme.
The scheme is using the kafalah concept which means direct fund. In this regard, WAZAN offers a list of excellence asnaf students who come from a poor family. Then the donors can distribute their fund contributions in ways and methods that can be defined by them where WAZAN will play the role as the intermediaries and facilitators.
Through this scheme, asnaf students can be helped because there are those who have to study and do part-time work at the same time to support the family as a result of financial constraints. The scheme will also facilitate them to concentrate and focus fully on their learning as well as producing more first class excellence asnaf students.
