Open Data on IGF Public Expose – Zakat Expo 2022


JAKARTA — The biggest kindness festival in Indonesia, Indonesia Giving Fest – Zakat Expo 2022 will take place on Friday – Saturday (23-24/12/2022) at Tennis Indoor Senayan, Jakarta. On the first day after the opening ceremony, Dompet Dhuafa as the Zakat Management Organization or Organisasi Pengelola Zakat (OPZ) Forum Zakat (FOZ) had the opportunity to explain its performance in managing zakat funds.

This session was titled Public Expose 2022 with the theme Islamic Philanthropy: Sustainable Development Goals which Bambang Suherman presented as Director of Communication and Strategic Alliance of Dompet Dhuafa.

Bambang said until 2022, what Dompet Dhuafa is doing is to continue to tidy up, strengthen, and develop intervention methods for mustahiks. Whether it’s in the service room, development, or empowerment. Dompet Dhuafa has set its vision on something relatively large enough.

“It is important that we make this big enough for us to achieve. So that what we have can be used as hard as possible to continue to grow capabilities and capacities. So Dompet Dhuafa set its vision as something relatively large enough to be pursued in the available time span,” he explained.

Dompet Dhuafa was awarded as the Second Best Winner in the Indonesian Philanthropy Category SDG’s Action Award 2022.

Dompet Dhuafa provides achievement indicators in the form of good and strong output in managing zakat activities in service rooms. The indicators are 3. The first is that the volume of beneficiaries must be quite large throughout Indonesia. Secondly, the accuracy of the beneficiaries must be understood and ascertained as appropriate. The third is that the impact felt by the beneficiaries can continue.

So the idea of zakat institutions to manage the program must reach the stage of the program continuing and not only at one execution. This is the idea that Dompet Dhuafa continues to develop to this day.

In March 2022, the percentage of poor people in Indonesia was 26.16 million people (9.54%), a decrease of 0.34 million people (0.17 %) from September 2021 and a decrease of 1.38 million people (0.60 percent) to March 2021.

Of the 26.16 million people, Dompet Dhuafa has reached as many as 11% or as many as 2.98 million. There are still 89% of the poor who have yet to be able to reach Dompet Dhuafa.
