Skatepark Uganda Skatecontest Kitintale

It's X-MAS time! Thanks to the support of our cooperation partner @westenergie, we could play Santa Claus ourselves yesterday and gave skateboards and the corresponding safety gear to the Alexianer-Martinistift. Some kids received them enthusiastically on behalf of everyone and were taught in a short workshop how to assemble the skateboard and some basics on which they can build further. Of course, everything was done in compliance with the current hygiene, protection and distance regulations. We’re happy that we were able to give the kids pleasure and hopefully we will visit more youth facilities soon. We empower kids!


Thank you to all our partners for their ongoing and excellent support even throughout this challenging year. Together we empower kids!⁠⠀


Last week a whole load of boxes made their way to Uganda, including decks, which we were able to collect in the Titus-Shops thanks to your support!
A big THANK YOU to all Titus Stores where we were allowed to put up our board collection boxes and of course to all who use them so diligently! Do it like Torsten from Willich...


We’re inconsolable, but the current COVID-19 situation cannot, must not and will not be ignored and therefore the C&A skate-aid-night supported by westenergie will not take place on November21, 2020. But as in other situations, we will not let ourselves be defeated and make a virtue of necessity. We're looking forward...


Thanks to the great cooperation, our westenergie x skate-aid skateboard workshops in the fall break were a huge success! We were on the road with our skate-aid coaches (including obstacles, boards and safety gear) in seven communities in North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony and the kids and everyone involved were totally excited.


This week we started with the control group for our study "Effects of a skateboard workshop on the psychomotoric skills and psychological well-being of children with ADHD" in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Heiko Wagner from the Institute of Sports Science at the WWU and Dr. Patricia Ohrmann from the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University Hospital of Münster.


With our offer skate-aid@school we have been on the road weekly at 6 schools in Münster since the beginning of school time. No matter if elementary school or high school... on 30 days we were able to excite to excite more than 200 kids for skateboarding. Even when it rained, our coaches found alternatives for the kids, whether it was the school gym...


This September we started with our new campaign GIRLS SKATE! We shape children through a unifying spirit. Skateboarding is more than just a "sport". It is about developing freely through intrinsic motivation, experiencing equality and learning what it means to grow up to be self-confident personalities. We empower girls!


In the context of the Youth Culture Night 2020 in Sundern, we were on site for the Youth Office Sundern from September 26-27 2020 and carried out skateboard workshops in the old station hall at @jugendcafe_gammon. The location was super cool and the kids and teenagers were totally excited! To our delight many girls took part in the workshop and dared to get on the board! We would love to come back! We empower kids!


On 19.09.2020 we were in Cologne at the Lise-Meitner-Comprehensive School for one of our free GIRLS SKATE! workshops. Of course our mobile minicamp, obstacles, skateboards, safety gear, helmets and our skate-aid coaches were there too. To empower girls - with this goal we created the campaign GIRLS SKATE! We want to actively change role clichés and encourage girls to pursue their interests and dreams and develop their skill...
