(29/07) On Monday, 29 July Puskas BAZNAS conducted National Zakat Index (NZI) training in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara. The training was held in conjuction with coordination meeting of BAZNAS in East Nusa Tenggara province that was attended by 12 BAZNAS City/district and a local LAZ.

Even though the training was held after Isya Prayer, the participants were highly motivated. As previous training, NZI event was divided into two sessions. First, was the explanation about NZI result in East Nusa Tenggara and second was the tutorial of NZI application via android system.

The result of NZI shows that the NZI score of East Nusa Tenggara is still not good. This is normal since majority population of NTT is not muslim.  Thus, one of recommendation proposed was an encouragement to the local government to support zakat management by issuing zakat regulation.

On the second session, the NZI training was running smoothly. This application can be used both in online and offline mode. This feature makes the data inputting process easier especially when conducting interview to mustahik.
