Ethiopia hold a special place in our hearts and has changed us forever. In 2015 we traveled with professional skateboarders Nyjah Huston, Tony Hawk, Derrick Wilson, and Matt Berger to build the first concrete skatepark in Ethiopia as well as repair broken wells within the surrounding areas. In just 1 trip we were able to repair 15 wells providing water to an estimated 7,500 people, one of these wells had been broken for 8 years. We are scheduled to go back to Ethiopia this coming December. We will be working to train and add more people to our well repair team to help with this massive problem. We will be working in Sidamo which is 6 hours from the capital Addis Ababa. We have already brought clean water to thousands and have transformed the lives of many. Please help us to continue our work here to ensure clean water continues to flow.
