The Project


In the years 2013 to 2015, skate-aid assisted Larissa Fuhrmann during her work at the Goethe Institu in the implementation of skate workshops in the form of skateboards, protection, helmets and accessories. The first workshop in 2014 went over four days, two groups of 16 children could participate. Each were led by Larissa and Deniz Ertin. Finally, a poetry slam took place and the kids could present their newly learned skills. Larissa and Deniz left all equipment to the youth center. Also in 2014 and 2015, the project was supported by donations in kind.
