The project:

Nepal is a historically rich and beautiful country in South-Asia and has been developing and modernizing fast with the goal of graduating from United Nation's ‘Least Developing Countries’ category by 2022. In 2015, Nepal was hit with a devastating earthquake of a 7.8 magnitude, leaving many parts of the country in ruins. Bringing new social infrastructure to Nepal is another crucial step towards to the country’s rebuilding and development. We want to play a part in this progress with the newest skate-aid Skatepark and sports-education-program.

After a few years of supporting our local partner ‘Yuwa for Change’ with skateboard hardware, we are happy that we can take this cooperation one step further. Together we will create “skate-aid Nepal” and start our new project in the city of Butwal, Nepal. We want to build a skate park in order to empower the kids in Nepal through our pedagogically supported skateboard workshops. Among other things, they learn to get up again and after falling and so they can develop into strong personalities. It will be also a place to be proud of, a community hub and positive environment where skateboarding magic can flourish!

The official opening took place on March 5, 2022. Among others, Titus Dittmann, Maik Giersch, Tobias Egelkamp, Jagrit Pahadi, Province Govenor Mr. Amik Serchan, Vice Mayor Mrs. Jageshowri Chaudaury Tillotama, Municipality Mayor Mr. Basudev Ghimire and Province Minister Mr. Lila Giri were present.
