In collaboration with Skate-Aid and Don Bosco & CV Africa Aid a skatepark was built at a school and training center of the Don Bosco Mission.

They not only have one of the largest sports facility in Tanzania but now an approximately 500 square-foot concrete skatepark.

Under expert guidance the park was built by a tanzania construction company in 4 weeks. After the skatepark has now been completed, there is a permanent care, such as skateboarding & BMX classes. Skate-Aid will assume the consequential costs of the park and the teachers.

On 22 July 2011 they opened the skatepark in Tanzania officially!
