The skate-aid team was on a renovation mission in Kigali/Rwanda. Our skate park there needed a "make-over". As a special highlight we had prominent support: TV presenter André Gatzke and comedian Simon Gosejohann were there with us and actively helped. In addition, the Krolop & Gerst video crew was on bord and we’re looking forward to breathtaking shots as usual.

Da es im skate-aid Skatepark in Kampala/Uganda geographisch bedingt sehr schnell und früh dunkel wird, fällt die perfekte Zeit zum Skaten zwischen Tageshitze und Nachtschwärze extrem kurz aus. Daher haben unsere Freunde von Taiyo Hive die Licht-Solaranlage auf 4 Lampen verdoppelt, damit der Skatepark von den Kids effektiver genutzt werden. Vielen Dank an Sophie und ihr Team, sowie an Jack und sein Team!

On Monday it was time: The skate park in Qudsaya near Damascus, which was built by skate-aid in cooperation with the SOS Children's Villages, was officially opened.
skate-aid and SOS Children's Villages worldwide are using the educational power of skateboarding in worldwide skate park projects to support kids in their personality development and to empower them. After successful joint projects in Kigali (Rwanda) and Bethlehem (Palestine), another lighthouse project was opened with this first skate park in Syria.
"Especially in civil war-stricken Syria, skateboarding can help young people to regain their courage, self-esteem and perspective and to overcome the traumatic experiences of violence and escape," explains Dittmann the intention behind the project. Both organizations planned it for two years and finally realized it in spring of 2019. "Our approaches to provide support and security to traumatized kids and teenagers complement each other very well," says Dr. Wilfried Vyslozil, CEO of SOS Children's Villages worldwide. "The joint project will hopefully find many imitators in Syria."
The new skate park in Qudsaya, on the outskirts of Damascus, is an open place of integration and encounter that will hopefully bring together all population groups and does some peace work in this country.

Our skate park in Windhoek / Namibia, which was opened as the first inclusive skate park at the beginning of last year, has been updated: the bowl area has been equipped with a huge sun sail, so that the kids are better protected from the sun while skating.
The skate park was created at the end of 2017 through skate-aid's collaboration with “The Global Experience” and the UNESCO Schools Schillergymnasium and Primus School at the National Institute for Special Education (NISE).

Yesterday was the kick off of our skate-aid@school campaign, where we’ll visit 10 schools in the Münsterland for one week with our mobile miniramp. Up to 20 kids can participate in our skateboard workshop, where we explain the basics of skateboarding to the kids. In this educational program, students (and teachers too) can learn what skateboarding is all about and what mechanisms skateboarding can set in motion. First stop was the Wilhelm-Hittorf-Gymnasium in Münster.
At the end of the workshop, the schools will receive 10 sets consisting of skateboard/helmet/safety-gear for further use.
