This Ramadan, Kaymu.com.bd, Bangladesh’s leading online shopping community is joining hands with four notable charitable organizations to make the act of Zakat simpler for those who want to pledge.
In partnership with Jaago Foundation, Teach for Bangladesh, Charity Right and One Degree Initiative, Kaymu has launched a dedicated Zakat page through which anyone can contribute their Zakat to the four partner organizations.
And all anyone has to do is click a button.
Throughout the campaign, Kaymu Zakat page will display `bundles` of products that consumers can choose from, including clothing, stationery and books. Consumers can then select customized bundles/products to donate to any of the four participating organizations. Once the consumer clicks ‘buy now’, the product will then be delivered directly to the relevant organization. Kaymu will then pick up the consumer’s contribution. The products listed have been sourced in consultation with the charities and will help them realize their respective mandates.The campaign was initiated during an event at the Kaymu Bangladesh office in Banani recently.
Quazi Zulquarnain, Deputy Country Manager for Kaymu Bangladesh said: “Our aim is to make the act of Zakat simpler for everyone. A lot of people want to donate and we are ensuring that they can do so without any inconvenience. Now you can just sit at home and click ‘buy now’ to provide clothes to a needy family or stationary for a poor child in need of education.”
Korvi Rakshand ,Founder of JAAGO Foundation, added ‘I am very much delighted and thankful to one of the most renowned online shopping communities in Bangladesh, Kaymu.com.bd for the affiliation of providing provision for zakat contributions towards the children of JAAGO. With this act of formal and social relationship, anyone can buy any item from Kaymu.com.bd and place it as zakat contribution for the underprivileged kids of JAAGO.’
Maimuna Ahmad, Founder and CEO Teach For Bangladesh said, “Teach For Bangladesh Fellows are bright young leaders working as full-time teachers in under-resourced government primary schools in Dhaka. We are delighted that through Kaymu`s Zakat campaign, our Fellows will be able to give their students much-needed books and school supplies, and enrich their learning experience. These materials will make a big difference in our classrooms, making teaching more effective and learning more engaging.”
Ashfaq Zaman, Advisor ,Charity Right shared ” Amazing Initiative to explore smarter & easier ways to connect mass people with social projects. We hope that the Charity Right supported underprivileged children will be delighted in receiving your gifted goods through this platform”
