This week we wanted to start the "Skull Bowl Project" for our Uganda project. In cooperation with our partner Jack, from the "Uganda Skateboard Union", we will add a bowl to the skate park. Since the project has been so successful so far, we will also send additional volunteers to Uganda this year to support the locals in their weekly workshops so that even more kids have the opportunity to take part. Our project coordinator Gabu wanted to head to Kampala this week to start the construction. The grand opening was planned for June ... BUT ....

China / France / Germany / Iran / Italy / South Korea / Spain “ End of quote.
Gabu can’t fly to Kampala because otherwise he would have to spend 14 days in quarantine at a local hospital at his own expense. We currently have to wait and see how Corona is developing and whether we can still keep to our schedule with the opening in June. But one thing is for sure ... we will build the bowl! We just don't know right now how and when. We'll keep you updated ….
