The Uganda Skateboard Union is a nonprofit that develops skate-parks and clubs for kids in Uganda. Judging from their blog, they're doing amazing work, growing fast, and doing stuff that should be replicable elsewhere.
Our first park was completed over a year ago. It has been a great success, lots of kids have been learning to skate, all of them are improving, and loving it more than ever. We now want to spread skateboarding to a new community in the country, to share it with more kids.
We are looking for donations to help us buy land and materials to make this happen. If you like what we have done with our first park, please support us in building a new one. As with our first park we are relying solely on private donations, so any amount will help!
