I have been involved with Make Life Skate Life for much of the last two years now. Pushing Myanmar (2016) was the first time I was officially involved with them; money was allocated for me to return to Myanmar after the project was complete to start the foundations of that documentary. After that I helped to produce the campaign video for the Nepal Project and have recently returned from producing content in Morocco for our Taghazout campaign. There will be a series of profiles on a few of the volunteers that will be available below over the coming month but to get you started here’s a skatepark feature I shot over the last few days of my time there.
Make Life Skate Life is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organization that works with local skateboarding communities around the world to create free of charge, community-built concrete skateparks. The skatepark projects we have completed in India, Bolivia, Jordan, Myanmar, Ethiopia, Nepal and Morocco have been successful through local community involvement from start to finish, providing local skateboarders with the tools, materials, knowledge, and inspiration to create their own projects.
Construction of skateparks is led by professional skatepark builders who create world-class skateparks and share their knowledge in the art of skatepark construction with skateboarding communities around the world. All of our skatepark projects remain sustainable through the establishment of free of charge on-site skateboarding and safety equipment loaner systems, run by local partner organizations, allowing all children free access to skateboarding regardless of economic standing.
