Skatepark Uganda Skatecontest Kitintale

Lexware skate-aid-night 2023: Burning hearts at the 17th edition of our charity gala. Around 250 invited guests, from not only all over Germany, answered the call to the Skaters Palace in Münster, including many celebrities and well-known "skate-aid friends".


We’re bursting with joy and can finally announce it: skate-aid e. V. in Essen and the “RTL - Wir helfen Kindern e.V.” foundation are joining forces to achieve the goal together: To empower kids!


In the first days of our Uganda trip we had a lot on our agenda: First of all we visited the further extensions of the skate park in Kampala as well as the new library.


24-years-old Joshi from Göppingen/Germany was volunteering for 3 months at the skate-aid skate park project in Windhoek/Namibia. Here he tells his story…


Kaspar Bunne from Berlin/Germany was as a skate-aid volunteer in Butwal/Nepal. For two month he took care of the kids in our skate park project. Check out his full report here.


Also this year, our long-time partner Westenergie supports us not only with the joint free vacation workshops in about 30 German cities, but was also, as in the previous year, at the Dittmann Matinee in favor of skate-aid with the Westenergie Backmobil to feed the guests with delicious freshly baked waffles. Many thanks to Westenergie for the great long-term cooperation!


The weather is slowly getting better so let's go out! Matching to its fresh skate-aid x Takko t-shirts, hoodies, caps etc. for guys and girls and for every occasion. Available in all Takko stores and at the Takko online shop. The stuff not only looks stylish, but also helps to empower kids, because part of the proceeds goes directly to skate-aid!


More than half a million refugees who have arrived in Moldova from Ukraine since the beginning of the war represent an enormous challenge in view of the population of almost 2.6 million and the overall threat situation. The refugee camp in Balti was built by the association "Die AHRche e.V.” and handed over to the local administration. We’re also working closely with the local authorities. Coaches trained by skate-aid started the educational skateboarding workshop program for the refugee kids with the container we set up and trained local coaches.
