OUR CHILDREN THE FUTURE INC (OCTF) is a non-profit organization that works with communities in Los Angeles, Trinidad and Tobago and Other International communities by providing for children who are in need with education, financial assistance and health care.

This year 2017, OCTF provided financial assistance for prom to three high school students, including myself.  I was blessed and very grateful to receive assistance from OCTF’s program because every teen’s dream is to attend their elaborate prom event and it’s because of their support, the family wouldn’t have to worry about having to pay for everything. OCTF knows that prom is a very special occasion in young adults’ life as It’s a time where seniors get dressed up in formal gowns and tuxedos to celebrate their achievements at the end of their high school academic year.

OCTF recently donated books and toys to an afterschool program, the Al Wooten Heritage Center for students from grades 3-12, During the holiday season OCTF host an annual Christmas drive where toys, books, school supplies, medical needs equipment and toiletries are donated.  These gifts are distributed to various communities.  I am delighted to tell you that last year, children in need from Belize, Trinidad, Tobago, and Los Angeles received gifts from their Christmas Drive.

During the year they host different fundraising events which is a source to providing for those in need. OCTF has also facilitated or provided support to back to school supply drives, holiday gift drives, scholarship awards, book giving programs, community outreach health programs, giving to the homeless and other community outreach programs.

Thanks to the members of OUR CHILDREN THE FUTURE INC for your generosity.
