During the holy month of Ramadan, the act of giving takes on increased importance, reflecting the essence and teachings of this period. Octa’s engagement in charitable activities underscores its core principles and acknowledges the significance of Ramadan within the Islamic tradition.

Ramadan, recognized as the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, is a period of great spiritual importance for Muslims globally, dedicated to contemplation, worship, and community bonds. Motivated by the zeal and commitment of its regional associates, Octa has initiated and supported a wide array of social initiatives within Muslim communities, perpetuating a longstanding tradition.

Notably active in Octa’s Ramadan philanthropy were Indonesia, Malaysia, and Nigeria, each presenting distinctive projects with profound effects.

In Indonesia, Octa championed an educational scheme designed to improve teaching skills through a sequence of 4-day educational workshops, in collaboration with Yayasan Tunas Aksara, benefiting educators from as many as ten schools. Additionally, Octa’s envoy, Andre Rizky, played a part in this campaign by leading a financial literacy workshop, thus enriching the educational content.

Malaysia witnessed Octa financing ventures that transformed education for numerous individuals by granting access to school management systems, a gamified learning platform, and Google for Education tools. In alliance with Ideas Academy, this effort transitioned over a thousand educational centers for refugees and disadvantaged learners into the digital age, enhancing their learning opportunities. This alliance further introduced an online workshop on financial literacy, complementing Ideas Academy’s independent learning model.

In Nigeria, Octa’s significant involvement provided 1,444 Muslims with nutritious meals throughout Ramadan’s five weeks, amounting to 288 meals weekly. This initiative held special meaning, marking the 1,444th anniversary of Prophet Muhammad’s journey to Medina. The meal distribution was organized through collaborations with local mosque leaders, ensuring support reached the most needy.

Octa’s participation in Ramadan charitable endeavors has evolved into a tradition, mirroring the broker’s dedication to community support. Looking forward to 2024, Octa is poised to broaden its philanthropic activities, aiming to magnify its social influence and build upon existing alliances while exploring new partnerships.

Established in 2011, Octa has emerged as a premier international brokerage, providing online trading services worldwide. The firm is deeply invested in various charity and humanitarian projects, with a special focus on educational enhancements and emergency aid, thereby uplifting communities across the globe.
