The success of our 2015 skatepark in Jordan--where children continue to have lessons, check-out free boards, and play–has inspired us to again partner with MakeLifeSkateLife to build a skatepark in Sulaimania (Suli), in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Suli hosts a population of 1.6 million, many of whom are refugees from other parts of Iraq. We have already procured land for this public community skatepark from the municipality! Now, we need $30,000 to fund the park and provide protective skating gear. With your help, we hope to make this reparations project a reality by spring 2018.
