Overview

The Fiers et Forts Skatepark is located at the Centre Fiers et Forts orphanage in Morocco and today offers daily youth programmes to 35 children living there.

It was built in early 2022 by a team of 25 volunteers from 10 different countries and 4 continents. Three local youth took part in CJF’s paid apprenticeship programme during the construction.

In respect to its cultural setting the skatepark design incorporates traditional Moroccan elements such as an arched doorway, ornamented rails, an olive leaf launch ramp and two large, buoyant palm trees.

The skatepark and youth programmes are managed by local and international staff.
