800 million of people around the world are in great starvation
The poors, the refugees, the victims of natural disasters and humanity conflict
Don’t we want to make them happy?
Global Qurban is ready to deliver your qurbani, in order to make fellow Indonesians happy as well as those persecuted around the world.
Our qurban makes the whole world happy
Global Qurban is the icon of Muslim solidarity for people around the world through the implementation of Islamic sacrifice (qurban). Apart from its essential meaning as human’s submission to God, Qurban or sacrifice has economic value in society. It allows this institution to create the strategy of qurban program which does not only show its charitable aspect but also its productive economic aspect. This then inspires Global Qurban to conduct the qurban activity from upstream to downstream level.
Currently, we have Community-based Livestock Barn in the upstream sector. Meanwhile in the downstream sector, Global qurban has distributed the qurbani meat to dozen of countries since 2013. Global Qurban has distributed the qurbani meat to disaster areas and poor/remote areas in Indonesia where people cannot fulfill their primary need properly. In addition, Global Qurban also successfully reached conflict and poor countries, where many people starve and suffer, as their target distribution. In 2016, Global Qurban will reach 27 targeted countries. The overseas countries include Palestine, Syria, Somalia, Central Africa, Jordan, Myanmar, Philippines, Laos, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Sri lanka, Thailand, Cambodia, Timor Leste, China, etc.
“Everybody Sacrifices with Happiness”
It has been five years since this brand launched its first campaign. In the fifth year of its operation, we want to deliver the campaign theme which is simpler, more emotional and more universal.
If everybody is asked about what they want, then there will be zillion of answers. Each of us has a lot of needs and desires. However, if we are asked what we want, this might be the only answer: everyone wants to be happy.
The beautiful happiness is near and it’s not merely about luxury. It’s simple yet priceless since not everybody gets the guidance from God to reach it. If we read the Arabic dictionary, we will find the term “qurban” and “qorriba” (meaning: near) in parallel. The words are like trying to indicate that qurban or sacrifice can make us closer to God. As a human, sacrifice is our effort to get closer to God the Almighty. Indeed, this is the highest happiness a devotee can get.
Contemplating on the journey Global Qurban has taken, there are numerous stories of happiness that we are grateful for. For example, we initiated a program to distribute qurbani to overseas countries so that people living in poor countries can taste the happiness even for awhile. Dozens of countries have been reached and the numbers keep increasing by now. An abundance of smiles are shown in the photos and videos, telling us how grateful they are, especially those who taste the qurbani meat and the warm care for the first time.
The devoted sacrifice doers also share lots of happy stories. They are not only satisfied with the service, but also the special happiness that they cannot find in the conventional sacrifice. The story of assisted goat farmers at LTM is great as well. They see how great the positive impact gained from the empowerment; it gives prosperity to both their family and local communities. Some goat farmers, who commonly live a very simple life, bursted in tears when they were given the opportunity to do umrah last year. Corporate partners felt the happiness as well, seeing how powerful the impact gained from the program.
This great wisdom inspires us to choose “Everybody Sacrifices with Happiness” (“Semua Bahagia Berkurban”) as the theme. The joyful nuance is represented by the bright colors and more festal design. Photo documentations of Global Qurban are still used as the main visual look of the campaign, harmonious with the visual look of GQ two years ago. The most interesting part is that this year, faces of people who involved in and gained the happiness of sacrifice are shown in the campaign, such as the goat farmers, the sacrifice doers, and the beneficiaries from all around the world.
By delivering the message “Everybody Sacrifices with Happiness”, together we go across the boundary of ethnicity, race, and country. Moreover, non-Muslim can feel the happiness as well while eating the delicious qurbani meat. This is what we call as Islam rahmatan lil ‘alaamin, spreading the happiness to the whole world. In the future, more people will gain happiness and benefits from this program, Insyaa Allah.

CHEAP. We offer affordable price for those who order the qurbani early (early bird price) through QURBAN PROGRESSIVE program.
EMPOWERING. By ordering the qurbani early, customers also participate in empowering local community through LUMBUNG TERNAK MASYARAKAT (COMMUNITY-BASED LIVESTOCK BARN) program which has been operated since 2007 in several regions in Indonesia. The goal is to give additional prosperity to local community.
Community-based Livestock Barn
The success of qurban/sacrifice service lies in the good stock management. This ensures the that the procurement of qurbani (sacrificial animal) does not follow the fluctuation of market price which commonly increases during Eid days. Therefore, this can be a mutual partnership between Global Qurban and the animal farmers.
This program aims to encourage people to manage and develop the potential of local economy so that they can improve their financial condition. LTM program is conducted at a location where there are enough resources for the needs of the program, such as livestock (goat and cow) and feed.
Livestock breeding and fattening program involves local communities. In addition, they are also educated, trained, and assisted by the professionals in doing animal husbandry. This includes the processing and development of livestock feed so that they can provide the healthy feed for the livestock and of course this will bring more benefits for the local goat farmers.
The long-term goal of this program is the development of the local goat farmers’ living standard. For example, they first join us as the goat farmer and after joining for three years, they can be the sacrifice doers. Furthermore, farmer communities can get health insurance for their family and education saving for their children.
Beside driving the financial condition of animal farmer communities, LTM also provides healthy and good quality qurbani, in accordance with qurban/sacrifice fiqh.
The existing LTMs are LTM Blora (Central Java), LTM Bojonegoro (East Java), LTM Tasikmalaya (West Java), and LTM Nusa Tenggara Barat.
In LTM Blora, qurbani management is organized by involving the local animal farmer communities. Under the coordination of Global Qurban’s partner in Blora lead by Aryanto, LTM Blora operates upstream-downstream management system so that in the near future, Blora can take back its position as the biggest livestock supplier in Central Java.
Locations of LTMs in Blora:
Gadon Village, Cepu Sub-district, Blora District, Central Java
Cabean Village, Cepu Sub-district, Blora District, Central Java
Jipang Village, Cepu Sub-district, Blora District, Central Java
Cintabodas Village, Culamega Sub-district, Tasikmalaya District, West Java
Hargobinangun Village, Pakem Sub-district, Sleman District, Yogyakarta Special Region
Krondonan Village, Sekar Sub-district, Bojonegoro District, East Java
LTM Yogyakarta was initiated in the post-disaster recovery period (Merapi eruption). Animal farmer communities as well as qurbani beneficiaries in the area are the victims of the disaster. With the assistance of animal husbandry experts, the management of goat husbandry which follows all related regulations can be well conducted, such as GQ’s experience in 2014.
Last year, adequate stock of qurbani are available in this district. The livestock help improving local economic condition since at that time, there was famine period in Bojonegoro as an impact of dry season. Drought put them in financial crisis. ACT’s partner in Bojonegoro, Totok Agung Purnomo, is optimistic about the availability of qurbani (goat, sheep). There are adequate stock for Qurban Eid this year.
“InsyaAllah, livestocks (qurbani) for the mustahiq (those who are eligible for the qurbani) are in good quality and ready to be slaughtered. For those who want to sacrifice and use qurbani at LTM Bojonegoro, they will get the best qurbani.
Since three years ago, LTM in Tasikmalaya has been operating fattening and breeding program for various kinds of goats. The management involves local communities such as pen keeper, feeders, and the feed makers. The LTM is located in Cintabodas Village, Cipatujah, Tasikmalaya
LTM Nusa Tenggara Barat
Three years ago, there was earthquake in Central Lombok. Thousands of houses were damaged and there was almost no real help. The idea to open LTM in this area emerged; it aimed to encourage local people to get up from the poor economic condition. Muhammad Alfian, GQ’s partner in NTB, said that NTB is a potential region to breed and to grow the qurbani; and to help poor people (as the beneficiaries).
The synergy of QURBAN SAVING, PROGRESSIVE QURBAN, AND COMMUNITY-BASED LIVESTOCK BARN, gives additional worship values and benefits for the sacrifice doers. Beside having more planned sacrifice, they also participate in empowering and improving the life of farmer communities, especially those who are in need.
For the development and expansion of its service outreach, QURBAN SAVING program cooperates with Islamic banks in Indonesia, such as BNI Syariah (52 branch offices, its supporting offices and cash offices are in Jabodetabek area) and Bank Muamalat, Fatmawati Branch (with 7 supporting offices/SO and cash offices/CO: SO Cirendeu, Cilandak, Bona, UIN, Cinere, and CO Masjid Pondok Indah and PB Sudirman).
Happy performing qurban, fellows!
