ACTNews, CIAMIS – Being beneficiaries must not stop us from benefitting others. This is the principle of the honorary teachers in CIamis after receiving assistance from Global Zakat – ACT, Thursday (10/14/2021).
Andra Rian from ACT Ciamis said the honorary teachers are resolute in their decision to be involved in humanitarian programs. They set aside some of their money every day to support Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT)’s humanitarian programs.
"Alhamdulillah, many people are inspired to give. Every honorary teacher in the school which received assistance is inspired to contribute to the humanitarian programs. Even the beneficiaries who have side businesses also place money boxes at their business places,” said Andra.
One of the honorary teachers who contribute to ACT’s humanitarian programs is Emul Mulyadi. After working at the school, he works as a motorcycle taxi driver.
“It might not be much, but this is what I can do to take part in humanitarian programs. I hope that this can bring blessing to me,” hoped Emul.

Besides Emul, Hana Musobihah, another honorary teacher, also does the same thing. She invites students at her school and at the Qur’an school that she manages to set aside some of their pocket money to be put inside the money box.
“I'm sure that many other honorary teachers also need assistance. I hope the students can also learn to be philanthropists from an early age,” he said.
The Friends of Indonesian Teachers program is a humanitarian program launched by Global Zakat-ACT to help honorary teachers who are financially constrained because they receive low salaries.
