View a gallery of Ethiopia Skate campaign pictures from Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia Skate is an organization that aims to promote skateboarding across the nation by building Addis Ababa's first skatepark and constructing a mobile mini half-pipe that can be set up at different locations around the city. Founders Abenezer Temesgen and Sean Stromsoe's  'National Skateboard Campaign' looks to give out 100 free skateboards to youth organizations and children, as well as bring in a team of international pro skaters to hold demos in Addis Ababa.
