Anyone who’s tried to skate knows how hard it can be to learn. There’s going to be a fall or two, or a hundred. But it’s not something the refugees under our partner Baobab Experience‘s wing have shied away from.

2 weeks ago our partners at Free Movement Skateboarding paid a visit to the Baobab Experience camp in Rome to try and teach refugees how to skate. It’s beautiful to see volunteers and refugees skating together.

We’re proud to work with both these fantastic organisations. Help us continue to support work like this by donating here:
