We asked for 10 educational skate-packs which included a skateboard, a helmet, four protective pads alongside a collection of educational kits (i.e. a notepad, etc.). Each skate-pack had a cost of £150 - the equivalent of €168, $199 or 14,209 MZN.100% of the money raised was donated to Maputo Skate, including gofundme commission which was matched by Keep•It•Human.
Our NGO partner Maputo Skate is a non-profit organization aiming to educate children and young people from 5 to 17 years of age with gender equality, through skateboarding, occupying their free time and at the same time educating so that they do not follow the path of alcohol and drugs.
