Fundraiser for Free Movement Skateboarding

Free Movement Skateboarding aims to empower the young refugee population of Athens by providing skateboarding lessons. Supported by the charity Help Refugees, we work together to promote dignity and quality of life for the refugees currently living in Athens.

Skateboarding builds self-esteem, relieves stress and is great exercise. It ties you into a broader community, absent of harmful stigmas. Skateparks are tolerant places where participation by all is encouraged, forming lasting friendships that transcend prejudice.

Our lessons offer physical and mental benefits, authentic cultural exchange, and work towards a gender-equal refugee skateboarding community across Athens. With so many refugees waiting indefinitely on asylum, the physical, mental and social benefits of skateboarding can significantly improve their quality of life.

All donations made will go directly towards the project; for equipment and materials, so we can create jobs for Greek locals and refugees, and to facilitate our expansion so that we can benefit as many people as possible!
