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 2009, 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 on the basis of 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.

22nd March 2020 a lockdown was imposed here in Kigali. We didn’t know how long it was going to take, but in the end it lasted 44 days. Day one seemed really strange as foreign friends and workmates were stressed to catch the last flights. It felt like a random break up of a great relationship. The first week of the lockdown was fully filled with creativity. Sometimes, I used to play indoors board games, juggling, balancing with the skateboard on a bottle of water.

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.
