Syria

Qudsaya, Syria

Our most recent project took place in March 2019 in Qudsaya - located in the suburbs of Damascus. Qudsaya Skatepark with a total of 750 m2 - is the first  skatepark in all of Syria. The construction of the skatepark was only possible thanks to SOS children villages and the amazing locals who got involved. 

 

The city is one of the most populated in the region, still growing after the war. Thousands of families have ended up in Qudsaya and the city holds an extremely high number of children. Therefore this location was ideal for building a skatepark that provides the youth with a safe and welcoming place for self-development and fun.

 

The funding of the project was provided by SOS children villages and Skate-aid. In the future volunteer-led skate programs will be held at Qudsaya Skatepark with free acces to skateboards for everyone.
