How we work

1 /. We respond to local demands for skateboarding facilities, in environments otherwise lacking in sports infrastructure and communal/youth spaces.

2 /. We partner with the most recognised skatepark builders in the world to provide professionally built, world-class concrete skateparks, free of charge to communities.

3 /. We leverage pedagogical expertise and years of experience to provide targeted youth programmes focused on life-skills for children and professional development for adolescents - through skateboarding. Learn more.

4 /. We build up local capacity and transfer the long-term running of the park and project to local partner organisations, to ensure sustainability as well as local ownership of the project

Skatepark construction

Concrete Jungle Foundation is a specialist in building skateparks in developing countries, and we are always keen to discuss third party contractor opportunities. All profits raised from such engagements go back into the organisation, allowing us to maintain our project locations, run our youth development programming, as well as train volunteers and local staff.
