ACTNews, SERANG – Global Wakaf-ACT Greater Serang provided Waqf Well for Riyadhul Awamil Islamic Boarding School, Cipete Parigi Village, Suka Laksana Village, Curug District, Serang City, Banten. The inauguration was carried out directly by the Branch Manager of ACT Greater Serang Ais Komaruddin, Thursday (6/17/2021).

"Hopefully, all students and residents can maintain this Waqf Well because this is a trust from the benefactors," said Ais in his speech. In addition to building a well with a depth of fifty meters, Global Wakaf-ACT has also built toilets and a place for ablution.

The Waqf Well is expected to benefit the students because it was difficult for them to bathe, wash, and cook due to limited water and sanitation facilities. The teachers even had to share the bathroom with the students.

Global Wakaf also planted durian seeds and built a fish pond. This additional assistance is expected to be able to maintain food security and strengthen the school's independence. In addition, the maintenance of fish ponds and durian trees can be a learning activity for students.

The teachers and students expressed their gratitude. “Now, it is no longer difficult to take ablution and take a bath. Students already have their toilets. If they want to eat fish, they can fish directly in the pond. Bravo for Global Wakaf-ACT!" said Jarawil. He is one of the students of the Riyadhul Awamil Islamic Boarding School.

Global Wakaf-ACT partnering with volunteers from Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) Greater Serang also taught the students and the locals about Clean and Healthy Lifestyle (PHBS) about which the participants were very enthusiastic. []
