We are a non-profit organization based in Denmark on a mission to build the first public skatepark in Mozambique


Our mission is to build a concrete skatepark, with elements firing for other sports and art.
The skatepark will stand around a youth center that will host multiple cultural and educative events and regular sessions.
Our deed should help local community to grow, attract more kids, more volunteers, more artists and more attention.


We know how skateboarding makes people happy and motivated. We have been there, we have tried that.
Our belief is that skateboarding and good access to it will do it’s magic also in Maputo.


We believe in enthusiasm for interesting projects that bring good to our society.
We believe in the value of human willingness rather than the value of money. We believe in great times while doing great things.
Most importantly we believe in respect to one another, as this project requires a great level of joint-action.

Partnership triangle

We came up with an interconnected project, that not only joints multiple activities, but also people of all origins with different interests.

Altogether, we will create a youth center that will serve all kinds of purposes within the city of Maputo.


Is a Maputo based association of local skaters and skateboard enthusiasts. Apart from being an important element in the very building process, ASM provides us with all kinds of information regarding life in Mozambique, necessary documentation, accommodation and so on.

ASM’s primary role is to facilitate the necessary paperwork needed for legal construction initiation and in a later stage operating majority of the programs in the youth center.
