Skate-Aid: For a better world
The pedagogic power of Skateboards
Global Development Aid for Youth
With the pedagogical power of skateboarding, skate-aid promotes self-confidence, community consciousness, personal responsibility and determination of children and young people on four continents. Independent of social origin, ethnicity, religion or culture. It goes without saying that we are enthusiastic about the project!

Skate-Aid supports kids in areas of conflict and deprivation by bringing skateboarding to their communities. In times of adversity, skateboarding provides unity, equality and a stable social environment. It enables kids to grow their self-confidence and self-worth and, most importantly, to enjoy good times. Every bit of help can change something for these kids and transform a community and its future. Supplying skateboards and skate equipment as well as building new skate parks are the main tools to provide education for a brighter, safer future. Skateboarding knows no boundaries or war, skin colour or hate or levels of wealth: Skateboarding unites!
With TSG’s support we can make kids and teenagers around the globe happy
Seeing the joy in the children’s faces really touched us, be it in Africa or in refugee camps in Europe. That’s why TSG has supported the project since 2012 delivering protection gear for the team and children. In addition, Skate-Aid receives royalties for each sold Skate-Aid helmet. This is our commitment trying to make the world a better place. The people behind the project say: “Skate-Aid has been more than happy for years to have TSG as a reliable, long-term partner who continuously supports our worldwide projects. With this support we can make kids and teenagers around the globe happy and give them the chance to discover the unlimited and exciting world of skateboarding.”
