The Uganda skateboard union is trying to make some changes by removing the first half-pipe which was constructed in 2005 by Sheal Swart. This half-pipe was destroyed by heavy rain which normally disturb some parts of Uganda most especially in Kampala areas.
Donors and well-wishers of Uganda Skateboard Union, they have done a big roll by donating funds to the Union,Yet is not enough as per now,we are too happy and that is why we decided to start the Construction and see were the money stops.
Brian,Yann were in Uganda for their second time to see how kids are good in Skateboarding.Yeah, the Union had a visitor called Torben.He came from Germany, in an Organization called Skate-aid. He is also started a project of Skateboarding in Tanzania.He came to meet Brian,Jack and also the kids of Uganda Skateboard Union.
Kids are so happy for their expansion of the skate park and they work too hard to finish the park at Kitintale. Remember these kids are the ones who constructed their skate park. And right now, they are still in Charge of constructing their park as you can see the photos. Torben with the kids of Uganda Skateboard union at their park before construction took place.
