Mission

about skate aid

skate-aid stands for a holistic, self-determined approach to the support of young people in the context of youth aid, sport, culture and international understanding. Our Mission: We empower kids! Since Titus Dittmann founded skate-aid in2009, we use the pedagogical power of skateboarding in our worldwide projects. It gives kids and teenagers orientation and identity-creating freedom in their orientation phase and helps them to develop into strong individuals based on self-determination and intrinsic motivation. Thus, skate-aid provides sustainable socialization, prevention and peace work, where social injustices and difficult living conditions endanger young people and inhibit their development.

I’m a forty-year-old skateboarder and surgeon from Norway who is on sabbatical leave together with my family (wife and two children). On January 5, 2024, we arrived in Namibia for the first time. In our luggage we had 35 kg of skateboard equipment, donations from the Norwegian skateboard community to skate-aid in Windhoek.

This is an inspiring success story written by Kihara, who has been with us for almost 10 years.
It shows the positive outcomes and transformative impact achieved through one of the skate-aid projects, located in Nairobi, Kenya:

Sample projects

Pedagogical Workshops

skate-aid has been a partner of the German association "The Global Experience" since 2015 and accompanies students of the Schiller Gymnasium and the Primus School in Münster as part of an intercultural inclusion exchange at the NISE school center in Windhoek / Namibia. It is a school center for physically and mentally impaired children and adolescents and is located near the Katutura Township.

Meaningful leisure activities for children and adolescents

skate-aid wants to improve together with the SOS Children's Villages the situation of the many traumatized children of Damascus. In the skate park, the children should have the opportunity, in the framework of pedagogically supervised workshops, to let off steam, to strengthen their sense of belonging and to overcome trauma when dealing with others.
