Department of Management has initiated to cooperate with Rumah Zakat (RZ) in terms of education, research and community service. RZ is an international philanthropic institution based on professional empowerment. Established on 1998, RZ has played an active role in building international philanthropic networks, facilitating community independence and optimizing all aspects of resources through human excellence. By optimizing Zakat, Infaq, shadaqah, waqf and other philanthropic sources, RZ develops integrated empowerment programs. All programs are implemented through integrated region-based empowerment (Integrated Community Development / ICD).
Integrated Community Development / ICD is a process of empowerment through an integrated program in accordance with the characteristics of a particular region and time. The ICD area is at the village level which is given assistance for a maximum of 5 years. The village that is assisted was termed as the Assisted Village; while the program it self is termed as the Empowered Village.

Both parties have begun to work together to help assisting villages in Pamoyanan Urban Village, Bogor City. The assisting activities are providing advice and facilitation for the development of the Assisted Villages’ SME product market.
