Boards without Borders is a private, non-profit initiative, which was launched in 2012 by Gottfried Kube. The aim of the organization is to support opportunities in board sports, especially for children from developing countries. It started off as a financial support for the construction of skate parks in India. Currently, we are working with a local organization called 'Holy Stoked'- India ́s first skate collective. 'Holy Stoked' has the first-hand experience in the building department. 'Boards without Borders' aims to back them up and to cooperate with them in their working process. In the pipeline are other projects in countries such as Namibia and Brazil, as well as Germany.

By providing opportunities of board-sports, we are raising the self-confidence of children. Board-sports are a tool of empowerment for young people in developing countries. It is an investment in young people who will develop into active members of society and bring change where it is mostly needed. We think that it is important to share joy!

Each of our team members can contribute their strengths to our project and can develop valuable skills in our community. People have responsibilities like event management and making of blog posts as well as video shooting and photography. All of that contributes to raise awareness and visibility of the organization among the public and future sponsors.

If you are an artist or sponsor or interested to support in any way, please contact us at team@bowibo.org.
