The voluntary organization Optì Pobà
Optì Pobà was an African player that used to eat bananas and now plays as first-string in Lazio team.
Instead, today Opti Pobà is a voluntary organization. It is a group of people that cares about the matter of immigration policies and integration. It is the easiest way to understand each other, especially when the “other” comes from another hemisphere. It’s a way to go beyond thousand of kilometers of desert and tears. It’s a silent tree that grows. You are Optì Pobà!
Optì Pobà takes care of brothers, asylum seekers and refugees that land in Italy after months and months of desert, tears, starvation, sun, prison, abuses, delay, sea, deaths, prayers and hopes. Football is a means of integration, it is an incentive that helps to reduce timing and extend smiles.
The football team
Thanks to you, our football team is going to participate, for the second year in a row, to an amateur championship. Throughout football we will be able to involve our guys in other activities, such as workshops, classes for linguistic improvement, job trainings and voluntary experiences. All of these activities have a price, such as transportations, rent of facilities, purchase of materials (for sport and for school) and only with your help we will be able to bear all of them!
The crowdfunding campaign
Together with the Crowdfunding, we will start the 2016 membership recruitment, therefore the organization can grow in all the national area.
We could write many other things but we don’t want to waste your time. We think that if you are here there is a reason..in fact, do you know that there are 2000 good reasons to donate and believe in us and believe in yourself!!!

Sono nato il 16 luglio 1987 a Potenza. Ho sempre avuto due passioni: il calcio e il volontariato! Così ho pensato di unirle in un'unica grande associazione, l'OPTI POBA', che ho fondato con alcuni amici nell'ottobre 2014. Prima di allora ho conseguito una laurea magistrale in Relazioni Internazionali e due master come allenatore di calcio a 5 e calcio a 11. Questa è la mia occupazione.. o meglio.. lo era finché non è arrivato Optì..ma questa è un'altra storia..vieni a scoprirla!
