PU$H 7HILLS AND GET ON BOARD!
7Hills is a Jordanian non profit which is using skateboarding as a tool for gender equality, youth empowerment and fostering social cohesion.
7Hills provides weekly skateboard classes, a loaner system, a leadership program and an outreach platform.
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.
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 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.
EVERY EXTRA EURO, DINAR AND DOLLAR GUARANTEES A SUSTAINABLE SKATE PROGRAM AND OPPORTUNITIES TO:
- INCLUDE MORE YOUTH
- RUN MORE OUTREACHING PROJECTS WITH A PORTABLE SKATEPARK.
- CREATE A BETTER – MULTIPURPOSE – INCLUSIVE PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE.
- DEVELOP A CREATIVE ARTS PROGRAM
