LAMPUNG – Six beneficiaries of Dompet Dhuafa Lampung’s Yatimpreneur Scholarship have successfully undergone intensive training and mentoring for five full weeks. They then graduated at the graduation procession at Surau Berkah Madani Centre, Way Kandis, Bandar Lampung, Saturday (24/2/2024).

The six beneficiaries are selected young talented orphans, aged between 16 and 20 years old. Through the Yatimpreneur Scholarship programme that began on 7 January 2024, they received various education in the form of theory and practice. The hope is that one day they can become empowered and independent orphans who become entrepreneurs. This programme is the result of the utilisation of zakat, infaq, and alms to help orphans/dhuafa to become entrepreneurs.

MPZ Baitulmaal Berkah Madani Center (BMC) as a collaborator of Dompet Dhuafa Lampung in this programme congratulated and encouraged the beneficiaries. BMC hopes that this programme can give birth to great orphans. In addition, the Yatimpreneur Scholarship programme is also sought to continue, so that more young orphans will become entrepreneurs.
