SHIFT + SCROLL
SKATE ADDIS. Addis Skatepark was constructed in April, 2016 in collaboration with Make Life Skate Life, a non-profit organization that works with local skateboarding communities to create free of charge, community-built concrete skateparks around the world. The local skateboard community in Addis Ababa learned from and worked alongside a team of over 60 volunteer skatepark builders and skateboarders from over 20 countries around the world as they collectively constructed Ethiopia's first skatepark. Every day young people from all over Addis meet at the Skatepark to chat and hang around together. Such places are very rare in Addis and allow the adolescents to develop and challenge themselves through play and sports.
