We are asking for 10 educational skate-packs which include a skateboard, a helmet, four protective pads and a small educational kit (i.e. a notepad, etc.). Each skate-pack has a cost of £150 - the equivalent of €168, $199 or 14,209 MZN.100% of the money raised will be donated to Maputo Skate.
If we surpass our initial goal, the aid will be used to purchase additional skate-packs. All of the equipment remains in the Maputo Skate facility, so that more than one young person can use the skate/safety equipment at different times of the day.
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.
