Open Field (formerly CameroonFDP) is a Pittsburgh-based 501.c.3 nonprofit organization and registered association in Meme Division (Southwest Region, Cameroon, Africa) with the mission to improve the lives and futures of youth through sport. Open Field was founded by American, Justin Forzano, and Cameroonian, Peter Ngwane. The two met in 2006 during Forzano’s first trip to Cameroon, Africa as an engineering student working on rural development projects.
In early 2010, the co-founders embarked on a mission to fill a void in social infrastructure by implementing Sport for Good programs. Initial activities included an educational youth soccer camp in 2010, followed by after-school programs and international team exchange in 2011.
