The project

The joint venture between Don Bosco and skate-aid realized a concrete skate park in Tanzania's capital Dodoma. The park has since then been the center of the sports complex at the School and Training Center of Don Bosco. To implement the project, skate-aid provided the know-how and a network of skateboarders and park planners who provided the parking plans. Skate-aid activists from Germany were on-site in the production and construction of the skate park, working closely with local organizations.
The ambitious construction project was planned in the summer of 2011 by Ralf Maier (Betonlandschaften). With the simplest of equipment, the park was optimized and built by skate-aid activist Axel Reichertz within just four weeks. The Skatepark was opened in July 2011.

skate-aid regularly sent volunteers to the project, including members of the Uganda Skateboard Union. This ensured the regular performance of skate workshops. In 2017, the project was completely handed over to our project partner Don Bosco.

The project was started by the Titus Dittman Foundation and then handed over to the skate-aid e.V. München.
