Yatim Mandiri is the National Amil Zakat Institution (LAZNAS) owned by Indonesian people who have raised the humanitarian social values ??of orphans with ZISWAF (Zakat, Infaq, Shadaqah, Wakaf) funds and other legal and legal funds, from individuals, groups, companies / institutions.
His birth began with the anxiety of several orphanage activists in Surabaya, namely Sahid Has, Sumarno, Hasan Sadzili, Syarif Mukhodam and Moch Hasyim who saw orphans graduating from high school in orphanages. Because not all orphanages are able to send their assisted children to college or are able to find them jobs, so most of these orphans are returned to their parents who are still there. After they return home, their lives will return to normal. Seeing this condition, they think of how these children can live independently without relying on others.
Then they designed a foundation that is engaged in the education of orphans from foster care with an orphanage program involving the orphans of the skills course. This foundation is running well and the potential of orphans must also be quite well-established. So to realize the dream of establishing the orphans, a foundation was formed on March 31, 1994, which was named the Foundation for the Development and Development of Islamic Orphanages and Full Child Care (YP3IS). Then that date is used as a birthday.
In its journey, YP3IS is growing well, thanks to funding from the community and more professionals to empower orphans through its programs. After going through a lot of changes, both in management and in management and to expand the benefits of establishing orphans, then through the meeting, it was decided to change the name to Independent Orphan
On July 22, 2008 Yatim Mandiri was registered with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights number: AHU-2413.AH.01.02.2008. With the new name Yatim Mandiri, it is hoped that it will become a powerful institution for orphans in this country. Yatim Mandiri has also been officially registered as the National Amil Zakat Institution based on SK. RI Ministry of Religion No. 185 of 2016. Until now Yatim Mandiri already has 46 Branch Offices in 14 Provinces in Indonesia. With a variety of self-reliance programs available, the hopes of Independent Orphans are growing better and able to spread wider benefits.
