With your support, Ethiopia Skate will be able to continue its grassroots efforts of promoting access to skateboarding by constructing Ethiopia’s second free access, community-built, skatepark in the town of Hawassa.


About Hawassa - Hawassa is a city in the Great Rift Valley of central Ethiopia, located 285km south of Addis Ababa at the eastern edge of Lake Hawassa. As skateboarding has increased in popularity all across Ethiopia, Hawassa's youth are in need of a public recreation and community space where they can feel safe and empowered. We have been granted access to 500 m2 of land from the local government to build Hawassa Skatepark, Ethiopia's second skatepark.
