Addis Skatepark - Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
In April 2016, Make Life Skate Life and Ethiopia Skate constructed Addis Skatepark to provide the youth of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with a free-of-charge, safe, and accessible place to skate. The 600 m² concrete skatepark was built in three weeks by a team of 60 volunteer skatepark builders from over 20 countries who worked with local youth to teach them about concrete skatepark construction. The skatepark provides a space to inspire creativity and community through skateboarding, accommodating the growing demand for skateboarding in a safe place in Ethiopia.
Help us SUSTAIN THE Addis Skatepark loaner program
Now that Addis Skatepark is open to the public, Make Life Skate Life and Ethiopia Skate are establishing an on-site loaner skateboard program, offer classes taught regularly by local youth, and provide free of charge skateboards, safety equipment, and skate shoe rentals. The loaner program is supported by a full-time Make Life Skate Life volunteer.
