        Goal

        Project description:

        7Hills is a Jordanian non profit which is using skateboarding as a tool for gender equality, youth empowerment and fostering social cohesion.


        Although more than 70% of the population in Amman is younger than 30, there is an immense lack of public spaces and free recreational outlets available for the youth in the city of Amman.


        7Hills provides weekly skateboard classes, a loaner system, a leadership program and an outreach platform. By regularly teaching skateboarding classes at the skate park, we are providing a safe place for leisure and physical education for diverse youth in Amman. We collaborate with local NGO’s that work with refugee youth to reach the most vulnerable groups for the skate classes. 7Hills provides 'skate busses', free rides, from and to the homes of youth which live in underserved areas. This way kids and families can reach the skatepark on a safe way.


        Over the last years our weekly reach increased to 150 boys and girls every week. 

        Next year, we aim to host skate classes for at least 8000 boys and girls! 

        The cost of a skate class for 1 child is €1.25. So for 8000 youth we need a budget of €10.000. 

         

        Beneficiary:

        7Hills targets both local Jordanian youth and the refugee population in and around Amman. Today, we organize classes for Sudanese, Somali, Yemeni, Iraqi and Syrian urban refugees and Palestinian youth from the Gaza camp in Jerash. In addition, 7Hills promotes daily skateboard sessions for the kids from the neighborhood. During the sessions the youngsters are free to use skateboards and protection gear from 7Hills. In the classes we stimulate interaction between local youth, diverse refugee groups, families from different areas in the city and both national and international volunteers.


        How can you help?

        To continue with all our classes and to increase our weekly reach, we need your help! 

        We need to collect €10,000 to start our skateboard program for 2019!

        The cost of a skate class for 1 child is €1.25. So for 8000 youth we need a budget of €10.000.


        Every Euro, Dinar, and Dollar is a big help for 7Hills. We need your support to provide opportunities for local and refugee youth to enjoy skate sessions at the park! The more support we get, the more kids we can include. Once we can insure sustainable funding for our current participating groups, we will be able to expand and reach more youth in and outside of Amman.
