The OF Vision

Empowering underprivileged young people in our society to realize their potential is Octopizzo Foundation’s lifelong ambition. There is a wealth of artistic talent and potential residing in slums, refugee camps and other settlements across the country, where millions struggle to survive every day on the margins of society.

 

OF believes in untying young people from the shackles of desperation through the uniting ingredients of Creativity, Art, Music and Sports.

Empowering.
