Uganda Skateboard Union

"Thanks to Swiss photographer Yann Gross who gave us permission to share this short film (that he Produced) that tells the story of how Jackson Mubiru started the Uganda Skateboard Union. It has blown up over the past few years and has changed the lives of youth throughout Uganda. Watch these kids tear it up and if you can help in anyway their contact information is at the end of the movie."

"It's amazing what's going on over there. And it just goes to show, skateboarding is as positive an influence as you make it. Skateboarding is creative, encourages community, tenacity, and is relatively cheap! I'm excited about what the Uganda Skateboard Union is doing, and to see where this goes!"
