Alhamdulillah! Center for Zakat Management (CZM) has passed another eventful year. Each year adds to its process of institutionalisation. The Annual Report is meant to reflect key features of year-long activities. I am happy to see that CZM is publishing its report. Bangladesh has been struggling for poverty alleviation since its birth and made much progress in different areas. Although the country has made significant progress, it needs to achieve sustainability in its development. Many organisations are working towards helping Bangladesh achieve sustainable development. For the last seven years, CZM is a part of this effort in alleviating the poverty, in which it uses Zakat funds. There is no specific data as to the amount of money that is paid as Zakat in Bangladesh; however, some quarters believe that it could be as high as BDT 30 thousand crore, which is equivalent to over 366 crore USD or 286 crore GBP. However, it is not all about the amount; rather the critical question is how that fund is managed, and more so how it is used in the life-changing functions for those who accept Zakat money. Experiences of CZM suggest that most people who pay Zakat are not happy in the way their funds are used. CZM works in this social gap. Looking ahead, I can see tremendous potential and scope for more work. It will not be out of context to mention that the momentum for work that CZM has so painstakingly generated over the years must continue. We want to carry forward the advances that we have made. For this, we all need to work together. CZM is the pioneer of establishing Zakat in institutional platform for utilizing the fund of Zakat in development purpose. Jeebika Karnaphuli Project, Chittagong is an example of creating sustainable community. Day by day, it is progressing in its own manner as community has taken ownership of their development. Besides, through its different new programmes, CZM is able to reach to the distressed people and support them according to their demands. The stories that appear in the pages of this report are stories about marginalised people who are relatively unknown and as such excluded from poverty alleviation programmes. These are stories of survival and courage. Many of these stories touch our hearts. From these stories, I have observed that CZM has a strong will-power to serve. CZM Page 5 of 61 draws its resolve partially from its success stories involving its right holders. Working with the marginalised people has always been a formidable challenge. CZM is mindful about this challenge. All the programmes and activities designed and implemented by CZM are tailored to meet this challenge. Our efforts are also directed towards reducing alienation of the poor and ultra-poor and increase awareness among those who pay and receive Zakat. During my association with CZM, I have always looked both back and ahead. Looking back, I take great delight in confirming that CZM achieved considerable success in a number of sectors that relate to the progress of its right holders. Looking ahead, I can see tremendous potential and scope for more work. It will not be out of context to mention that the momentum for work that CZM has so painstakingly generated over the years must continue. We want to carry forward the advances that we have made. I would like to close this note by thanking the key patrons of CZM. I extend my thanks to the CZM team, both in the fields and the Head office for their hard work and dedication. I also owe a deep sense of gratitude to my colleagues on the Board for their wise counselling and support. A word of deep appreciation is also in order for all zakat payers and sponsors for ceaseless support to the cause of CZM. Wassalam Niaz Rahim Chairman Page 6 of 61 From the fountain of the CEO Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim Alhamdillah, all praises be to Almighty Allah for rewarding us with yet another year of success. The year 2016 was an excellent year for Center for Zakat Management (CZM). This is our year of consolidation. With a view to creating an excellent organisation in institutionalising the management of Zakat, CZM has taken a number of initiatives in 2016 and Alhamdillah, we have achieved significant milestones. CZM has arranged number of seminars, round table sessions, brain storming sessions and Zakat fairs with a view to increasing awareness. Our awareness raising programmes include instructions as given in the holy Quran and hadith, disbursement procedure of Zakat by individuals and business Zakat payers and mobilisation procedure of the funds. It is evident from the CZM programmes that its regular interventions under different initiatives are very consistent with the MDGs and SDGs. CZM activities are consistent with poverty alleviation strategies. By now our programmes have acceptance even outside Bangladesh. Some of the notable areas of CZM operations are: livelihood, health, education, vocational training and humanitarian assistance. CZM has implemented a number of projects under this thematic area of developments across the country. Community based approach helped CZM to reach out to the marginalised people and address the rights of people. Through its innovative interventions, CZM already created a wave of development among 150 thousand people through its 70 different projects across the country.

In the Gulbagicha Education Centres, not only they learn and develop the interactive skills but also get some nutritious meals. Our meals are designed to meet the nutritional deficiency of the children in the slum area. Unemployed youth is the burden for the society and obstacle for sustainable development. CZM has been implementing the Naipunno Bikash, A vocational training and employment programme, with a view to turning them into assets for the society. For providing support at the time of humanitarian crisis, CZM has been implementing Insaniat Programme, which addresses emergency humanitarian assistance requirements caused by natural calamities, loss of homesteads by river erosion and other disasters. This programme provided support for medical needs, loan repayment, and stipend for poor students and so on. Zakat is a bridge between the rich and the poor. All our programmes are aimed at alleviating poverty so much so that a person who is receiving Zakat today can pay Zakat tomorrow. I like to expand our heartfelt thanks & gratitude to our patrons and well-wishers, without whose active support, we could not have been successful.
