Make Life Skate Life
NHS is proud to partner with Make Life Skate Life and their commitment to keep skateboarding accessible to all communities.
Make Life Skate Life (MLSL) is a non-profit organization that makes skateboarding accessible in low-income countries. NHS Fun Factory is donating 1% of all orders to MLSL in order to help them build skateparks in underserved communities around the world.
Since 2013, MLSL has built 10 community skateparks in areas with up-and-coming skate scenes but with no safe places to skate. These skateparks have contributed to the growth of local skate scenes and have provided a place for international grassroots skateboarding to flourish. All skateparks are free, public spaces and are designed and built in collaboration with local skaters and community leaders.
Skate-Aid stands for a holistic, self-determined approach to the support of young people in the context of youth aid, sport, culture and international understanding. Our Mission: We empower kids! Since 2009, we use the pedagogical power of skateboarding in our worldwide projects. It gives kids and teenagers orientation and identity-creating freedom in their orientation phase and helps them to develop into strong individuals on the basis of self-determination and intrinsic motivation. Thus, skate-aid provides sustainable socialization, prevention and peace work, where social injustices and difficult living conditions endanger young people and inhibit their development.
The mission of Skate Wild is to connect skateboarders to the outdoors. Through the Skate Wild trips we offer opportunities to learn about the outdoors and how to feel more comfortable in wild spaces.
