ACTNews, BOGOR REGENCY – Empowerment value becomes the main reason for the Waqf-Based Livestock Barn planning in Bogor. The plan is also supported with the available land in Ciomas District, Bogor, West Java. On the eight-hectare land, there are fish ponds and fruit and vegetable plantations that are ready to be managed and utilized.

Wahyudi from Global Wakaf-ACT Bogor team revealed that later after the construction is finished, the Waqf-Based Livestock Barn will be able to accommodate up to 2,000 goats.

Insha Allah, for the initial plan, the barn will be built for 500 goats and sheep. The livestock will be managed by the santris of local Islamic boarding schools,” said Wahyudi, Thursday (9/16/2021).

When the livestock breed, Global Wakaf-ACT will entrust them to plasma cages located in 50 orphaned and underprivileged boarding schools.

In addition to fulfilling the santris’ food needs, Global Wakaf-ACT expects the Waqf-Based Livestock Barn in Bogor which is planned to start operating in October to be the economic driver of the targeted boarding schools. Furthermore, the plasma cages in other Islamic boarding schools will be provided in the coming year.

“Hopefully, there will be no more underprivileged santris in Bogor City and Regency who are starving. The barn is also expected to support the operational needs of the boarding schools. Therefore, support and assistance from the benefactors are also needed to spread the livestock barn’s benefits as soon as possible,” hoped Wahyudi.[]
