ABOUT US

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

Mission

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.

Vision

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

Values

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.
