The newly introduced scheme is more conceptualized in kafalah, which mean the direct sponsorship of which the WAZAN offers a list of excellent asnaf students from very poor families to be selected and consistently sponsored by any individual or organization.
Under the Scheme, the donors can distribute their sponsorship donation by their own ways and methods and WAZAN will play a role as mediator and facilitator.
For example, a donor who requested his or her name was kept secret, had sponsored two students for RM2,500 per semester with a total of RM5,000.00, while another donor who also asked to keep his or her identity secret, sponsored RM200 per month to a student .

"Their family life is very difficult and they themselves are financially finite, some of whom are orphans, among them are the eldest child," he said. "Some of them have to make two types of part time jobs after lecture time to finance some of their study needs here as well as support their families in the village at the same time" he added.
